Enhancing cairo's xcb backend to match the xlib one? But since the 2 are 
supposed to yield identical results, I think there could be a lot of 
interesting work to do by automating the comparison between the 2 backends.

I think coming up with methods and tools to help you do that will surely 
impress your reviewers. :)
