The problem with AGG ( http://www.antigrain.com/ ), so to speak, seems to be that it's too complex for people to easily understand it. Unfortunately, this is an impression that is given by its advanced use of C++ and its very high modularization: it's just out of reach of most *nix geeks.

Another issue is that AGG doesn't have many backends, but we can trace this issue back to the fact that not many people seem interested in AGG, despite its superior (IMHO) design.
