I have no knowledge of python bindings to glitz, but I'm generally of
the opinion that we should first fix the X server, (which can use
glitz or OpenGL or anything else), before making applications
dependent on OpenGL and glitz.

I'd definitely be interested in seeing what you've got. We're always
looking for new performance test cases for cairo. And new games to
play aren't bad either, (I'm _working_ here, not goofing off, honest).

Thanks! Happy new year to you too. Personally, I enjoyed my break very
much, (no posts to cairo@ from me since December 23 you might notice),
but I'm also quite glad to be back and I'm looking forward to our next
round of performance improvements.

Those improvements, plus some stabilization work, (such as fixing all
the locking bugs that Monty found), and I think we'll be in good shape
for an exciting cairo 1.4 release in January still.
