  Glad to hear that.  However, exactly when will Cairo replace libart? 
If in gnome 2.8, then I'll forget about it.  If later, I think it's
worth it, if the gnome community accepts it.  I have most code ready and
everything, because of gnomeprint python bindings...

  Anyway, doesn't the API compatibility requirement prevent libart from
ever being removed until gnome 3.0?

  Thanks, and regards.
