Hello strk,

What's the real world benefit from that? Does the parsing take so much

Because it depends on the pixel format? Shouldn't that be a cache
object just like the mesh set? This would also mean that the bitmap is
converted at play time, not parse time.

I'm currently trying to redesign the renderer without breaking
existing renderers. It does not appear much difficult.

I skip the cache part until basic rendering works. However, how do you
suggest the cache to be stored? It really seems to be the best if it
is stored in the *definition* of the character, but which would be a
clean way to store cache objects? I'd like to let the renderer decide
how the cache should look like. But I don't like to put a simple void
pointer there...
