Isn't it possible to build it modular and as a runtime option

This would be achieved by building in both CDraw and Cairo. I presume
we'd have a user interface option to do this. There are still remnants
of an option to allow OS rendering rather than CDraw rendering anyway
(this makes Xtreme use OSRenderRegion rather than GRenderRegion
for the screen), and I presume it might work a bit like that.

However, the point is some people won't want any trace of non-free
(GPL free, not free-as-in-beer) code in their program, whether it's
switched off or not.
