Conceptually, are we into parallelizing Freetype rendering engine? As
I alluded earlier this can be happily delegated to text layout
engines. Hence we used to care about thread safety in Freetype, while
the text layout engine is busy processing 8 letters at once. Raph uses
at least 8-core processor. I would be interested to see how his
renderer performs on a single core, without parallel tricks.

Thank you,
