 In case that would involve removing buffering of bitmaps, please check things 
like still work 
well with Skia in software mode. I've implemented a cache in the Skia backend 
to handle cases of drawinglayer being dumb and repeatedly asking to do 
expensive redraws of the same stuff over and over again, which requires that 
the underlying bitmap is the same object and not something created from 
scratch every time.
