I think we've all learned this lesson now.  The advantages of pixel
precision are mostly in testing, and if the cost of reasonable
performance is a more complex testing infrastructure, then that's the
way it goes.

We're discussing how to manage testing for cairo, which certainly
doesn't have a pixel-exact specification as it crosses a wide spectrum
of rendering backends.
