    They really don't seem to matter much. Text is generally a colour expand
    fill (ie mono -> colour bitmap expansion) or alpha blended fill.
    Stipples and tiles are no big deal and angled lines are used very
    little, and are also very cheap because they don't cause any pci fetches
    except for weird stuff like xor lines. The main users of those do
    horizontal/vertical only which means they are just rectangles...
