[Pixman] [PATCH 4/8] Better support for NONE repeat in nearest scaling main loop template

It sounds to me like you are proposing that a binary zero-or-source 
decision be made for each pixel in the output space. I don't think this 
will work.

The pixel sampling of the source needs to do this, otherwise filtering 
cannot be used to produce an antialiased edge where the image 
transitions to NONE.
