The new API wouldn't be a drop-in replacement for the current one; the
current one would continue to exist, and we'd create a separate set of
gdk_render_* functions that correspond to libart/XRender/gnome-print
type of stuff. gdk_draw_* make pretty strong guarantees about the
exact pixels they draw, so that can't be changed.

gdk_gc_transform() would be extremely nontrivial to implement, in any
case, so won't happen for 2.0.
