Default 185.19 and smaller pixmaps

The X driver now allows pixmaps smaller than 32x32 pixels to be placed in video memory.
I noticed this from the release notes of the driver and I remember long ago AaronP saying that a lot of the poor performance in Firefox was related to it constantly creating tons of pixmaps. The InitialPixmapPlacement and GlyphCache help with newer versions of the driver (as does the firefox beta) but, is this change also aimed at Firefox performance?
