    a new API to build upon the best of GBM, EGL, Gralloc, Vulkan, etc
    Unless my understanding of things is way off, you meant EGLStreams here.

    Early tests show FastUIDraw being much faster than Cairo, Qt, and other common drawing interfaces
    As-is, the mention of FastUIDraw and Qt this way is like saying that V8 is faster than JavaScript or Stylo is faster than CSS. It's the Qt and Cairo backends that FastUIDraw beats, not the higher-level APIs which rely on them.

      Can you use Qt with the cairo backend and Cairo with a Qt backend? Otherwise, I think it's quite acceptable to consider each of them as one unit.
