Well, Phil Schwan has made a good start on one, but we are in a bit of a
quandry now as to whether to try to finish it or not.  We are concerned
about the amount of effort it will take to finish since it will arguably
be deprecated by the arrival of Pango and friends in 2.0.  There are
some significant issues related to zooming and general font suckageness
that sidetracked our effort.

If the abi guys think their architecture will support such a beast, I
say bring it on.  I'd be willing to throw in with them as far as setting
up some bonobo factories and such.
