I suppose since glitz is busted in 1.8.0 it's not THAT simple :]

I'm looking around at the code paths for Cairo and it seems anyway that as long
as you have Render acceleration (new radeonhd etc.) then this is going to be
pushed through the graphics card anyway through that method.. however it is
fairly dependent on the driver supporting XRender in whatever mode you're
trying to run it in.. so far I see a lot of drivers only supporting it in EXA,
or having better support in EXA, but this is by far not the default yet (r200
definitely not, radeonhd maybe it is).

I guess it does not matter at all if you do have a nice, fast processor to fall
back on, but the stuff I work with every day and the products we're looking
into making sometimes really don't have much to work with :(
