Hi Nick,

I'm really glad you're happy with the API and the output quality.

And I'd really like to see us improve the performance problems. Can you
give us some more details on what's not fast? Do you have something like
a minimal test case that's obviously too slow?

We do have some people on this list who are really good at cairo-win32,
(I happen to not be one of them), so I'm hopeful that with some more
details we can find a fix for you.

I hope you can have fun with cairo!
