I was really surprised that You still think about to commit a solution 
for "[Bug 37347] A pdf with a grid of thin lines is almost unreadable 
and looks awful" for 0.22. Please keep in mind that in my regression 
test it changed round about 39 % of rendered pages. If You want to look 
at each of the changed pages You probably need more than a delay of five 
weeks. But if You want to do that ambitious work, I can upload a rebased 
patch tomorrow. On the other hand I already thought to implement a three 
state option (instead of just a true / false for "enhance thin lines"): 
change nothing and let everything at it is, draw thin lines solid or 
draw thin lines with a calculate shape. Even if I like the changed 
output this could make the solution more acceptable and we can add a 
HINT in the interface libraries how we plan to do it for overprint.

Just one thing I missed in Your collection: it would be nice to close 
the memory leak in the implementation of CharCodeToUnicode, see 
"*Bug 54702* <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=54702> 
-Memory leak in CharCodeToUnicode", too, either with my patch for it or 
anything else.

BTW, I plan to upload a revised solution for overprint in Qt tomorrow 
and will then also answer the outstanding questions.
