By the way, I really mean it :) In my opinion, it is generally enough
that the patches are useful for something and do not cause
regressions. If implementing additional performance tweaks may take
too much time, then they can be added later. But it is also important
to realize that there is still some room for improvement and not to
drop the optimization work half-way.

Also maybe you have noticed that pixman-0.26.0 is about to be released
next week:
We still need to either fix the bug which causes the test suite
failure for MIPS DSP ASE. Or at least disable problematic
optimizations for this stable release.
