Ok so in our terminlogy that would be libqgis_core

The next main task is for Martin to merge his threading branch which
we hope will improve rendering performance somewhat. I also have some
ideas about using a compositing so that we can boost performance at
the possible expense of greater memory usage while rendering.

Not currently. By the way as far as I know the Arthur paint system in
Qt4 is based on AGG.

Not formally that I can think of. Rendering performance in my opinion
should be the major focus of the 2.x release series - we have rich
functionality now but we need to deliver that quickly to the display
device or the user gets frustrated.
