Sorry, I really shouldn't use gmail web interface.

I used the official gentoo ebuild in portage and it has a qt use flag
to enable it.
The ebuild doesn't seem to use any patches.
But it really doesn't matter since the rendering is worse and
introduce an unnecessary cairo dependency.

Sorry, I only quickly valgrinded the app and added the matching delete
for the new.
so if I understand it right, I have to use unref() instead even if I
directly allocated

Do you want the link to my test files ?
As you can see in the screenshot, Splash output is antialised. but
there are minor differences in the pathes.
