    Yes please start working on it. The only thing I'm
    a little concerned about is leaving it as open as
    possible. By open I mean making it so that it's easy
    to support pangoft & pangowin32 even if we start off
    only with pangoft. I'm also leaning towards making
    it open at a different level to use some
    XAP_ScriptEngine which starts just as a wrapper for
    Pango but leaves open the possibility to include
    Uniscribe too especially since it looks like we lose
    some currently working scripts with Pango on Win32 and
    I want to be able to play with Uniscribe anyway - it
    could be very useful for comparisons.
