I am planing to remove the stale Pango code from CVS Head. For those
who have not been around long enough, this code (inside #ifdef
WITH_PANGO) is a leftover after an attempt to use Pango in the layout
engine I made about 18 months ago; unfortunately I ran into too many
hurdles to make it work. So, I am going to remove this code, because
(a) it serves no purpose, (b) obscures current code, and (c) if/when
it comes to using Pango in the layout engine, it will be better to
start from scratch (it will require more radical rewrite than
initially assumed, Pango keeps developing, etc.).
I am planing to do this as soon as the 2.0.1 release is done so as
not to complicate any backporting between now and then.
