Hi Behdad

I don't think that is my decision to make. When thinking about "fonts in
cairo", I'm thinking "Behdad". I'm just asking weird questions from the
sideline. :-)

Thanks. :-)  Pushed!!!!  At least ten people already asked me "what's up with emoji" at GUADEC...

P.S.: How relevant and up to date is the CC list here? I always get a
"your message to gtk-devel-list awaits moderator approval"-mail when
replying to this thread...

My messages go through, yours probably don't because you are not a member.  It's valuable still.
