           Summary: Use a larger scaled glyph cache for CJK languages
           Product: cairo

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: general

Profiles indicate that for CJK languages, glyphs get scaled too frequently
because the default cache is too small:


cairo-scaled-font.c has this:

and it includes a comment that it would be better to have a cache shared across
all fonts, with a random replacement policy.

Simply increasing this value to 2048 gives very good results; with the
pango-profile benchmark, scaling glyphs went from using about 60% of the time
to only using about 13%.

This bug is a reminder that a cache shared across shared fonts is desirable.
