    Erkki makes a very good point - when the purchasing departments of large
    organisations start *requiring* support for things like proper support
    for complex text rendering as a precondition for procurement, commercial
    software companies will sit up and start to listen. In my experience the
    accountants and sales people in large software houses often have far
    more say in things than the developers.
