Perhaps I wasn't sufficiently clear. I was interested in knowing whether 
Graphite rendering via Harfbuzz is slower than OT rendering via Harfbuzz 
for the same text/script. Somehow I get the perception that OT is 
"inbuilt" into HB whereas Graphite is an *external* library that HB 
calls, which is why I ask.
