How one would prevent 'polygon request too large'
Xlib error? Is Xft capable of breaking the glyph in
smaller polygons, or probably there are X extensions
that allow large X requests?
This happens when I output font with pixel size larger than
Another question, which can serve as a safe fallback
for the said problem: how I would ask Xft to create
a bitmap glyph for me, for local use, without sending
it back and forth to the X server?
Yet another question: how to output Xft text with
logical raster operations? Agree, xor-ing antialiased
text has little use, but it is not so for the non-antialiased.
