Fantastic, Jeff!

You're taking a big job off my plate with this and I appreciate it.

We're now regarding xserver/fb as the definitive upstream for the
libpixman implementation. Patches are approved without further review
necessary if they meet all of the following three characteristics:

1) Bring code directly from xserver/fb.

2) Do not change the public interface of libpixman.

3) Do not remove improvements in functionality or correctness that had
   previously been applied to libpixman without first being applied to

Number 3 is the only part that is tricky at all. Fortunately, there
hasn't been a _lot_ of activity in libpixman so going through its
history and pulling out patches to apply to the xserver tree hopefully
shouldn't be too hard.

Of course, changes that make automated substitutions such as the
recent patches should be trivially safe from (3) so they can be
applied immediately. And as more of this gets in place it will likely
be easier to identify other interesting bits that are currently living
exclusively in libpixman.

Anyway, I've just given you commit access to libpixman, so feel free
to start applying changes.

Oh, and another thing that could help here is to make more filenames
in libpixman match the names of xserver/fb. I can help with that, and
will coordinate with you in IRC.

Thanks again,
