Using the Cairo public API force us to convert all glyphs from the FreeType
26/6 format into double (i.e. a FP division each time). Then Cairo itself
converts all the double into 24/8 (again more FP).

If we use the Cairo API for glyphs then it will automagically convert the 26/6
into 24/8 using integer math (i.e. only shifts). 

There should be a big gain >there< - but it's less than clear if the end result
will be visually faster (since cairo may be doing extra stuff not needed for
