The cairo architecture is designed with the idea that fontconfig and
FreeType would be replaced in the Windows environment.  A native font
mechanism will provide consistency with font selection used in other
Windows applications.

Not that fontconfig can't be used in a Windows environment, it's just that
it's not the mechanism used by other applications on the system, and hence
provides a 'different' experience for users of cairo-based applications.

I did think that fontconfig had been made to run under Windows; if anyone
has patches or other requests, please bugzilla them in the fontconfig
bugzilla at https://bugs.freedesktop.org
