Well, we'll have some solution. (GTK+-1.3 will not replace GTK+-1.2
for GNOME until we release a final GTK+-2.0 and Pango-1.0)

I really dislike this solution because it means putting a whole lot
of special cases into the Thai shaper. With this solution, we
might make all sorts of mistakes way if we don't know about the
fonts in advance, and there would be no way of fixing them without
recompiling Pango. :-(
