Hello Dmitri,

... and thanks a lot for the large amount of information.

I think I will try to implement XRender "fast-paths" for the most
common cases, instead of "forking" the pipeline. I hope it can be done
to not replace the X11 pipeline but rather extend it, as you mentioned
like GDI and DDraw.

Yes, I also think that a rewrite of the X11 pipeline very much in the
style of the OGL/D3D pipelines would be great - even the source
available in jdk7 is much cleaner and than the source of the X11
A complete rewrite of the X11 pipeline would be way too much work for
me, I have quite a hard time at university - I guess it would be
better to get at least something working than an unfinished project
somewhere on sourceforge ;)

I'll play arround a bit with it, hope the amount of questions will
nobody bother ;)

Thanks, lg Clemens
