A couple things:

1) pixman is currently being extracted from cairo into its own separate library
that will be shared with the xserver. So expect to move your efforts in that
direction and update your patches accordingly.

2) As Carl said above, it's important to use cairo-perf to report any speedups
you've gained. That way, the advantages are clear. So far, the only numbers
reported here are relative percentages, which aren't nearly as convincing. In
addition, you're not leveraging the statistical methods that Carl has spent a
good amount of time on to make cairo-perf numbers as meaningful as possible.

That said, I don't doubt that you'll see some nice speedups since we currently
have no SIMD optimized code for Sun architectures. Can't wait until Sun open
sources the "fast" version of mediaLib :)
