I've pushed changes to my git repo such that the double is passed all
the way down, i.e.:
void pixman_image_set_color_tolerance (pixman_image_t* image, double
The mapping is essentially unchanged, we just pick a different number of
entries for the lookup tables depending on the value of tolerance. But
all this is hidden from the user.
but I'm unclear what you mean about the mapping breaking. Unfortunately
the color lookup tables aren't any use in respecting an error tolerance
at render time (unless we're going to interpolate between cached values,
but that kinda defeats the purpose of the lookup table - to remove per
pixel color calculations). Or did you mean something about the ranges?
ala (0.0,0.5] => MEDIUM?.
