After landing Bug 362682, Xft based font metrics has been killed from gfxPangoFonts.h (gfxPangoFontGroup::CreateGlyphRunsXft/Fast). I think it would be better allow to use Xft based font metrics generation for Mobile devices...
Some change from bug 362682: ......... - XftGlyphExtents(dpy, xfont, &glyph, 1, &info); + pango_font_get_glyph_extents (pangofont, glyph, NULL, &rect); ......... made font metrics generation ~1.5-2x slower... (visible on zooming see Bug 402555)
Would it not be more useful to file a bug on pango with a reproducible testcase?
This bug hasn't been touched in years. Is this still wanted?
No, I guess pango/ft2 font engines are optimized good enough already and no need for this anymore.
