Yes, which is very important IMHO.  Also Pango HEAD handles
OpenType Latin (and other basic scripts) fonts.  It also does
cairo-fc hexbox drawing.  That change deserves going into stable
branch, but it was a non-obvious change and needed some porting
work, so I didn't do myself.

I think a better way to rephrase Federico's question is: should
the floating stuff be rolled back?  I think that was discussed
and closed already.  So we have a glib release that we want to
not use?!

The question is really about glib now.  Pango is using some new
stuff in latest glib, includeing g_slice, like many other modules
do already..
