We can't possibly put this into our Friday (today) build with this major
a change, nice as it is to pull in Pango for its internationalization.
This build is intended to be "big/low risk bug fixes only".  Changing
rendering engines, even moving to one that is used elsewhere is a major

There probably won't be another build for a couple weeks.

Please, next time branch in your source repository for a release, so
that key bug fixes can be done without pulling in major new
functionality (e.g. Pango support).

We *will* want to put the pango version in quickly after as possible
after today's build, so that it can have good soak-in before BTest-2;
and we'd be happy to make the update available separately from the base
system immediately for those who want it.
                          Best Regards,
                                        - Jim Gettys
