[Pixman] [PATCH 3/3] BILINEAR->NEAREST filter optimization for simple rotation and translation

If I understand this right, I also think the "simple" test is all that
is needed. The only interesting matrixes are 1:1 scale with integer
translations. There are exactly eight arrangements of the upper-left
corner: with ±1 in location 0,0 and 1,1, and with ±1 in locations 0,1
and 1,0. I think this is what the simple existing test is indicating.
It is true that bilinear scaling will reduce to point sampling for
scales of 1/N with appropriate translations. However I very very much
recommend against trying to optimize this:
1. The translation will have to be various fractions (don't forget that
the centers of pixels are at .5 coordinates!!!).
2. All these scales look BAD with bilinear filtering. You guys have to
realize that scales less than one REQUIRE more than 2 pixels of input
for each output pixel. There is NO WAY AROUND THIS, stop pretending
3. I would expect the optimization will be far faster if it can assume
the source pixels it is copying are 1 apart.
