Feature freeze exception for Pango


As you probably know, we added vertical writing support to Pango this
cycle.  While the base has been committed for quite a while, there are
some remaining bits still sitting in bugzilla for my review, and some
missing bits too.  So, I want to get permission to commit some new API
after feature freeze and before January 15th.  This includes mostly the
patch in [1] after revision, plus some markup attributes for the new
glyph direction support.

Note that since Gtk+ is not releasing a new stable series for this GNOME
cycle, the vertical text API in Pango will most probably go unused for
GNOME 2.18 anyway, but I really want to have the complete, functional,
API in Pango 1.16, instead of some bits missing.

Thanks for considering,
