Not in principle, just a matter of time.

There seem to be conflicts between hb-buffer.h in the new harfbuzz and
harfbuzz-buffer.h in the old. e.g. hb_buffer_clear and
hb_buffer_add_glyph. There may be other places, but that's what the
compiler tells me to start with. I'm not sure how likely this is to
cause problems if an application links to say a pango using hbng and the
old hb in some other way. Visibility compiler options probably prevent
it being a problem in cases like say QT.
