note that the url for evas is not valid anymore - but try and you can see the latest evas tarball anyway.

also note - this doesn't test everything x/xrender/etc. can do - but does kind
of go through a set of common and useful operations. the best part about it is
that it really provides a way of seeing how good an implementation of opengl
is vs. xrender vs how well you can manage the same thing with optimised code
in-client memory and then blast the results to x. generally speaking - from a
driver/ x hacker point of view xrender and opengl SHOULD never really be
significantly slower that software client-side - in theory. they should exceed
it hopefully many times over :)
