Actually, looking again at the client’s example, perhaps I was a little
hasty in describing them as quality “problems”. The client was doing a
comparison with resizing in Photoshop, and yes, their result looks
smoother if you compare them side-by-side. Perhaps Cairo itself cannot
offer the same breadth of quality options, but I could probably match
that by resorting to direct Pixman calls.
