Hi Bill, it's definitely #2.  And please accept my apologies.  My
misunderstanding was that since this posted around the time of your
pixman patches, that this particular patch was to be applied after the
pixman changes were accepted in pixman.  I didn't even look at your
patch, since my assumptions were wrong.

Btw, there is a patchwork.freedesktop.org, which while it doesn't include
cairo currently, I suppose could.  I've been studying patchwork today in
some depth, and I think it or something like it might help us in better
tracking status on proposed patches.  I'll be investigating this further
as an ongoing task, as I have time.  I'd like to find ways to make
reviews more lightweight and improve transparency of the review status.

Meantime, I think in general if you post a patch and it doesn't get some
reply from me or someone else within a week or two, probably the best
thing to assume is that none of us felt smart enough to comment on it,
and/or possibly no one understood it.  Following up with hints, or even
just a ping, should help.
