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.
