I just came up with another question: How are overlapping glyphs handled?
Let's say I have a red glyph and a blue glyph and I draw them in such a
way that they overlap. Let's say this additionally overlaps with a
non-colored glyph in the same position and I use a green source with 50%
alpha (cairo_set_source_rgba(cr, 0, 1, 0, 0.5)).
What's the visible result?

was deemed too silly to merge
