After posting that I realised that the renderer was probably the right place
for the sort of "fixes" I had in mind, not Clutter.  You say though that Clutter
will never target the software renderer.  Does this mean that you take
explicit action to prevent it, or just that the software renderer doesn't
implement everything you need?  I am strongly assuming the latter, but
asking just in case.  Any idea whether this will be different with llvmpipe
whenever it becomes usable?
