I'd like to propose a new branch in the GNU Classpath CVS repository:
graphics2d-rewrite.  Patches to this branch should be sent to
address@hidden with a subject line prefix of [g2d rewrite].
Commit policy is the same as GNU Classpath trunk.

On this branch I'd like to do several things:

1) Make Graphics2D the default
2) Remove Graphics
3) Split Graphics2D according to

Once these items are done and tested to work as well or better than the
current Graphics/Graphics2D implementations, I'll merge the branch into
trunk and continue development there.

Any objections?

I'm looking forward to seeing this work proceed. I can certainly help with testing, but I'm not likely to be much help with the actual implementation (I know so little about the non-Java bits of GNU Classpath).

Regarding 3) and BufferedImages, I think I recall Sven saying he was mistaken about the DataBuffer classes. As far as I could tell (from writing some Mauve tests for them) they use real Java arrays. And that makes using Cairo for BufferedImages more difficult, doesn't it?
