It seems you have missed quite a bit of what has happened in GIMP
development recently. GIMP displays an interpolated view of the
projection. The nearest-neighbour algorithm is not any longer used.
GIMP also maintains a pixmap of the projection, or at least something
that is very close to what is being displayed. It remains to be seen if
we need to add another level of caching there to get reasonably fast
tool drawing. It might be necessary to keep a copy of the displayed area
with all display filters applied so that tool expose events can be
served from this.
