We've been flaming on this subject on this list before.

Apparently, the current incarnation of EXA is built on the assumption that
everything should be accelerated, and that when it isn't, it's a bug.  Hence,
it pays no attention whatsoever to the performance of software rendering.

(Strong vocabulary chosen deliberately, to get some EXA expert to react.)
