I'm not sure :/ because sometimes you want to paint the decorations, brush 
outlines on the border of the canvas. Maybe we can find some way how to tile 
the canvas qimage so that borders are separated rectangular tiles and canvas 
image is the one from the methods you mention. But then I don't know how to 
paint stuff easily :(

Sorry, it is typo, it is INDEPENDENT_CANVAS and I named it that way because it 
brings independence to platforms regarding the rendering the UI stuff. Windows
uses raster engine AFAIK, Linux has X11, but this way you can force the widget 
to use Raster and I don't know about Mac OS but same applies to Mac - Raster 
is used for the one widget.

I was thinking about Why not run krita like krita --graphicssystem=raster (not 
exactly sure) but then raster is used for every widget. Raster is slower (I 
read it somewhere) then X11 because of some optimizations I suppose..
