> I would say a registry key is fine to turn it on/off but this is a minor detail. The most important thing is that the architecture is 100% correct. Implementing drawing functions in software isn't that hard but getting the design right is very, very hard. I would suggest to post a big patch for review or so. Not to discourage you but I fear that the design might still not be good.

I'll polish a bit the code and publish a big patch here.
BTW, I followed Jesse Allen's and Huw Davies way, as I was told it
