Run one test twice in 2x modes. ]

+ Late Features:

+ back to quiescence
+ coverity down slightly; 310 -> Java issues.
* SVG graphics rendering (Jan-Marek)
+ SVG graphics are rendered by decomposing them into 2D drawing layer objects
+ extremely slow rendering for complex graphics like the squirrel from
+ since the render image target was removed, what would be the best way to cache
+ what would be a good idea to speed it up again.
+ have a playground in a special private/jmux/ branch.
+ Dave Richard (dave_largo) wanted to spend some time on it (not sure if he actually want to code)
+ horrible perf. issues with transparent images over remote-X (Michael S)
+ we get a remote round-trip to GPU or remote server.
+ good place to start optimizing.
AI: + talk to Armin, alg on IRC (JMux)
+ polygon winding dead slow - and duplicates underlying rendering often (Michael)
+ doing this while rendering is faster.
+ Should we support external renderers like rSVG again?
