Cool thanks.

Yeah, fair enough.  I am figuring that stuff cp'able to 1.14 may also
apply to 1.12 without change, so opportunity cost of a point release
there could be low.  I know it's old, but I also know there are still
users of the old releases -- cairo snapshots exist in various web
browser, etc. trees.  Anyway, I'll play it by ear whether to do 1.12,
thanks for giving it consideration.

I'd spotted a few other patches in addition to yours I thought could be
picked easily, which I'll do today or tomorrow as time permits.
Admittedly this release is going to be pretty light.
