    _cairo_color_double_to_short(): Use standard rounding algorithm
    The _cairo_color_double_to_short() function converts a double
    precision floating point value in the range of [0.0, 1.0] to a
    uint16_t integer by dividing the [0.0, 1.0] range into 65536
    equal-sized intervals and then associating each interval with an
    Under the assumption that an integer i corresponds to the real value i
    / 65535.0 this algorithm introduces more error than necessary as can
    be seen from the following picture showing the analogous
    transformation for two-bit integers:
       0b00         |  0b01     |      0b10 |          0b11
    which shows that some floating point values are not converted to the
    integer that would minimize the error in value that that integer
    corresponds to.
    Instead, this patch uses standard rounding, which makes the diagram
    look like this:
       0b00     |      0b01     |      0b10     |      0b11
    It's clear that if the values corresponding to the given integers are
    fixed, then it's not possible to decrease the resulting error by
    moving any of the interval boundaries.
