At fontconfig page ( http://fontconfig.org ), the author mention a patch to
qt3 enabling use of fontconfig with xft2 instead of xft1. And mentions that
troll's already working on it.
I know that use this thing is a great improvement, even to use of xft1, but i
think that's is a bit more sane wait qt be ready to xft2 to start use in
KDE's code, avoiding possible problems in this stage of 3.1 development.
And even we don't know if qt will have this one in qt 3.1 now...
