There is a _cairo_pattern_is_opaque convenience function in
cairo-pattern.c. There is a caveat listed concerning patterns and
gradients: * Convenience function to determine whether a pattern is
an opaque (alpha==1.0) solid color pattern. This is done by testing
whether the pattern's alpha value when converted to a byte is 255, so
if a backend actually supported deep alpha channels this function
might not do the right thing.
If I understand this correctly a "deep channel" is one that supports
values in the whole range of a short. Which part of the code
determines if a specified color uses the whole range of values of a
short VS 0-255 for each channel? Knowing this would help going around

You're absolutely right. I'll look more into this.
Thanks for the feedback,
