Hi all,

As part of the color font support in FreeType, I also hacked cairo to route
all glyphs through the image-surface glyph compositor and hooked up color
glyphs there:


Is anyone with better knowledge of current cairo compositors willing to finish
this work?

Behdad Esfahbod (on behalf of Google) contributed support for color
embedded bitmaps (eg. color emoji).
