I also want cairo to be as fast as possible in all situations.
In fact, that's the point I was trying to make in the previous
message, but maybe I wasn't very clear.

If there are parts of cairo that today are slower than they should be,
I don't want people to train themselves into avoiding them. That's why
I encourage people to code however they see fit so that we can find
out where the performance problems are.
