    I would like to remove all the non-bidi code from the HEAD, leaving
    the next version of AW bidi-only. I have talked about this with Dom
    a while back, and I think now, before Martin gets too deep into the
    rewrite, is the right time to do this. This will not only reduce the
    clutter in the sources, but also pull our bugfixing and developing
    resources together. The Pango stuff will only be inside the bidi
    branch anyway, and I am hoping that the Pango layout engine will
    be the only one actively developed by mid summer (Owen Taylor
    tells me that he knows people using glib on all our target platforms
    except BeOS, this would get rid off the main hurdle in our way; I
    will try to get some contacts).

    If you have objections to me removing the non-bidi bits then please
    voice them now, otherwise I will do this over next weekend.
