Maybe, but (please correct me if I'm wrong) Wikimedia is not compiling
zillions of small scores via a single process as the doc build is doing
for the NR. And once you start a new process for every snippet and need
to wait 0.6 seconds for LilyPond to boot up, the speed advantage of
Cairo compared to the existing backends becomes negligible, I suppose.
