I'm having some problems with 'currently' applying to ignoring a patch that improves
performance on 'embedded' platforms for about 4 and a half *years*. For over a year I've
been trying to bring it to people attention, but somehow it didn't work. Now after making
2 hard statements about how hard it is to get patches into gtk+ I suddenly see 3 people
volunteering to work on it. So, it *has been* productive, whatever you or vincent may claim.

I'm not a supporter of being rude, but in this case it helped more than being polite and

And I want to stress again how much cairo has improved on embedded platforms the past
year. If we all work on getting patches like this into gtk+ and cairo we have a chance of
freeing all those little toys from gtk 2.6.ancient, so seperate branches aren't needed.
