[ft] Freetype performance question?

Most users of freetype on a X system first use the freetype2 engine to render the font to some in-memory bitmap and then use XPutImage to render the image to the screen.

Does anyone have any performance benchmarks compared to simple X rendering (i.e. XDrawString). I am especially concerned over slow X connections. If one is rendering a full screen of text using freetype on a slow X connection they have to effectively transfer a full screen bitmap image.

Has anyone ever tested this or measured the performance hit compared to XDrawString?
