Bitmap Potter / Clipping rectangle

Hello again ;) 

I have a question about the clipping rectangle within 
the bitmap plot function...  

Should the clipping rectangle clip the original image 
or should it clip the scaled image? 

Framebuffer version is not an good reference for this, 
because it doesn't implement scaling. GTK does it, but 
the code is gdk dependent and I'm not sure how these 
gdk_* functions behave.   

If the clipping really should be done on the source 
image, should the clipping rectangle also get scaled 
like the image, and then applied to the scaled image?

Thanks for reading and your help. :) 

Greets,
Ole
