Hi Damien,

I think AA is nice, but want to point out that it shouldn't be applied to the UI and controls themselves. The UI elements already have custom AA code, to make them look identical across different GFX cards, and to ensure they always render properly and quickly. Unfortunately your commit makes the UI widgets look very fuzzy, as you're applying AA to something which is already smooth. 

Here are two screenshots to illustrate this:


I'm all for having AA, but IMO it should be limited to the 3D view content (and perhaps other views too? Node Editor?)
