Hi Owen,

Looking through the various modules, I see that most of the languages
have two sets of files - e.g. hebrew-x.c and hebrew-xft.c

I'm guessing that the Xft named file incorporates XFree86's Xft subsystem 
for providing font information to the client into its core, but what then 
is the function of the other file? Is it for those systems that are not using 

Do you recommend coding for both sets or just Xft?
