There was no "WE". There was only ONE person who started the rants. The
same person who started this thread again... again less than 24h before
Keith Packard: Why are _you_ always coming up with such kind of
"problems" in the last minute ?

Hint: The last X release made FreeType>= 2.1.7 mandatory, later it was
updated to V2.1.8 due lots of problems in 2.1.7 AND the issue with the
CJKV optimisation. So the vendors have two choices:
1. Using a buggy FreeType 2.1.7
2. Use FreeType 2.1.8
The 2nd option would trouble users much less...
