            So from this I am guessing that the "plan" is to use Pango,
    and make sure that we can build the necessary parts of glib on all
    the target platforms and just live with all the code duplication
    (containers, threading models, etc.) that will ensue.

            And will you be using Pango on top of FT2 or native rendering?
