If you can no longer find any bugs in it maybe,
but it has been unstable in the past.

It has been a version or two since it was unstable.

Are the bugs reported?
Are them fixed?
Do you know how to reproduce them?

Real problem is that it's significantly slower,

It's a default. People would still be able to chose non antialiased

and that it requires libart which is not
installed everywhere.

Almost all current Linux distributions provide it.
I was just suggesting on having it enabled by default, if there's no
libart just fall back to the non antialiased renderer.

I actually kind of like the sharper edges of non-anti-aliased drawings
(makes for better PNG files) and I'm not sure it makes much difference on
an LCD screen anyway.

I frequently turn it on on LCD screens.  In particular, it makes
arrowheads much nicer.

I try to have everything antialiased.
