I'm porting an Xlib based framework to XCB. And it uses Xft for fonts. So my question is, what is the done thing in terms of using Xft in an XCB application?

I can't just use libXft because it expects Xlib to be around.

Maybe I should use the built in font methods instead? But I think that maps to the old legacy X windows font API does it not? Not that new TTF based fonts that Xft gives you.
