libgdiplus main goal is compatibility, it's an extra layer on top of
cairo and will never be a racing horse. OTOH your contributions to help
performance, without hurting compatibility, is welcome.

Does not wine ship its own libgdiplus ? If you're using their version
then you should ask them about their performance advice.
If you're using Mono's libgdiplus then make sure you're using the latest
(not the embedded) cairo. That will bring you all the performance work
done by the cairo folks since cairo 1.6.
