By, "next fall", I meant Fall 2002.

There may be some small performance enhancements in 2.0.x, but
basically, we already did a lot of work in this area and there isn't
much low hanging fruit. 

The one exception is coverage calculation in PangoXft/PangoFT2 which
currently is quite slow ... Xft2 support (2.2) will fix this but
using FT-2.0.9 API's when available would get a big performance boost

(GDK and GObject have some possible performance fixes, but GObject is
going to be hard to get traction on, and it's not clear if the obvious
GDK fixes would really make that much of a difference... in any case,
we are talking really short 2.2 timescales, so there won't be time
for anything but the most straightforward bug fixes for 2.0.)
