Internationalization isn't that important at the moment, but it may become
so for my programs.  I also don't care about binary compatibility either.
But I do need consistant rendering and having selections work alright.
And I would like behaviour like qt has where if a font isn't found in
xrender, it uses the old, non aa method of rendering.  Combines the best
of both worlds I believe.

I may go ahea and start using the new stuff, even though it's still under
development.  The core APIs seem pretty stable.
