We don't really have a lot of 'images'... but I wonder if we could do
this for the profile (i.e., render it at full resolution). Given how
much the initial design of Subsurface was driven by the desire to have
smooth, beautiful rendering...

Is there a tutorial on how to do full resolution work with Qt? Just
wondering how much work this would be. But it sure sounds tempting :-)
