I have changed the code in MyPaint now to render to RGBA instead of RGB. After
also removing the cairo.EXTEND_PAD again, the result is now 3 times faster than
anything I have seen before.

Looks like I'm seeing full hardware acceleration for the first time. With the
cairo.EXTEND_PAD fix the speed was roughly the same as software-only rendering.

There is a penalty for this when doing software-only (noaccel) rendering. I
have measured 5% slowdown. This is acceptable so I'm leaving it like that.
