embedded systems for example. The GDK backend abstraction finally enabled
people to use GTK+ without X11 which makes it suited for embedded devices.
Unfortunately GTK+ development is still very X11-centric lately.

I'd have been happy to see Pango use a backend-independent font
configuration system that depends solely on GLib. With GMarkupParser
we have a small XML parser in GLib that should be sufficient to
implement a small and effective font configuration layer.
