I really agree with your pov, however experience as developer of the
xrender java backend has taught me otherwise.
Typically performance bugs don't get a lot of attention (this was also
true for the intel DDX driver a few years back ;) ), especially not
for the under-staffed mesa drivers. Even crashers I filed against
Intel's mesa driver never got a lot of attention, so I don't think
RFEs regarding performance would have resulted in any actual
The question seems to be whether to do the right thing vs do what
results in the best results.
PS: Thanks again for your SNA efforts. Its a real joy to do
desktop-work with the intel drivers!
