Heh, yeah. People have built an awful lot of Xlib-based infrastructure
over the last two decades. We XCB developers have some typing ahead of
us. At least the region code should be an easy case.

/me boggles.

OK, I know it's been a few years since I've run Enlightenment, but isn't
that kind of like the pot calling the kettle black? And that aside,
Cairo is only "slow" now: with the recent API changes settled in, I
assume the Cairo folks will be focusing mostly on performance over the
next few months in preparation for their 1.0 release. I mean, heck, you
know about the performance of Glitz and everything, don't you?

Please tell me you folks have a better reason for not wanting Cairo than
"it's too slow."
