Hi Vlad,

Thanks for starting the discussion.

Sounds great.

EXTEND_PAD definitely. Also, the rest of the "goofy X server visuals"
work, (meaning support for mask-based format compositing in pixman and
probably taking the pseudocolor patch for cairo). Then also fixing
pixman to handle A8 masks with a stride that is not a multiple of 4.

I think that's the short required list. There are tons of other
projects/features that might happen if they happen to get done, (24.8
would be great for example), but I don't think there's much else that
should block the release.
