Issue 181: Improve appearance of Graphics

Reported by Nikolaus Schaller, Nov 23, 2010

by using Xrender.

I.e. fix Xrender backend issues:
* problems with tesselating polygons
* scaling of images
* smooth antialiased fonts
* clip by antialiased path (is that possible?)

Xrender should also be much faster when displaying images/bitmaps 
since they are cached in the server.

It will only be slower with complex polygon shapes that are 
tesselated into many triangles.

Has been fixed partially by subpixel interpolation in the NSBitmap 
drawing code.

Although switching to XRender would still be much better 
(performance-wise).
