It is pretty usable for the momment.

I want to give it a pass or two of cleanup (name space fixes, some
consistency issues here and there, and a small class reorganization
for the print context and the print output).  But that must be it.

Now, Raph and Owen have larger plans for handling correctly
high-quality typography in their Pango project, so we need to see how
that evolves.

Good point, I am integrating these comment.

On the gnome-config issue, what is your suggestion?

gnome-config --compat, or gnome-config --version 1?

The reason I want to avoid this is because it would be very hard to
maintain those as external packages.

Good point.
