A large part of the speed issues come from the underlying Cairo that we
were using (Cairo 0.4) we are upgrading to the new version now (Cairo
0.5) which should help a bit here.

In general, the team at Novell's priorities are:

	* Feature is correct/complete.
	* Code is maintainable.
	* Code is fast.

But this should not stop anyone from having their own priorities and
contributing code to take mono on a particular direction.

In general, people have been fairly successful at profiling Mono
components as they mature and tuning those to be better/faster.
