For XRender it would require rendering to an intermediate A8 surface,
for MaskBlit/Fills it would require pre-allocating a large image, and
copying the tiles.
It could in both cases, but it would mean loosing a good deal of performance.
Hmm, for now it builds and runs quite well. If at one point it
doesn't anymore, if nobody fixes it there's no big deal in reverting
I know its an ugly situation, but whats the difference if I had
written a rasterizer completly from scratch and asked for integration.
That would also require maintenance. Ok, it probably would be way less
