Hi all!

Just some few questions about the rendering of Moonlight:

1. Is Cairo going to be the definitive library for drawing?
2. Was The Visualization Toolkit [ www.vtk.org ] considered? If yes, why
wasn't it elected? If no, wouldn't it be a good choice?
3. What facts made Cairo the election against AntiGrain? "Just" hardware
acceleration as I read on Miguel's blog?

Although I'd like to know all about this the most importante question is
the first one. I'd like to know if Cairo is the one to be used for
long-term development of Moonlight.

Thanks for the information and congratulations for all that hard amazing
work you did.
