Sorry, that came out harsher than I intended.

What I meant was: Have you seen benchmarks that indicate GDI is faster  
than Cairo? It would be interesting to know what those benchmarks  
tested. In my (very limited) experience with graphics benchmarks,  
relative performance of different graphics libraries can often be  
fairly benchmark-dependent.

In any case, the first step towards making WebKit use no other  
graphics library than GDI is to find one or more developers who want  
to work on it.
