The now default Cairo results in much prettier graphs, but dense graphs such
as plot(rnorm(1e4)) take considerably longer to plot than using
X11(type="Xlib"). This has already been mentioned, but I was wondering if we
users could expect Cairo speed increases in the near future?

>Slower under some circumstances (although on the test systems much faster
than packages Cairo and cairoDevice).  This will be particularly true for
X11() with a slow connection between the machine running R and the X server.

Using R 2.7.0 on Ubuntu 8.04 (Pentium 4 1.70 GHz on one machine and Centrino
Duo on another)
