One tricky aspect of fontsetting is metrics; once you start pulling characters
from other fonts, it's clear what you should return from ascent, descent,
etc. If you just return the biggest ascent/descent from any possible font, you'll
get amazingly large line spacings because of Arabic's large descenders.

Because of this, and because of possible performance problems, I'd like to
see any support of fontsetting in Cairo clearly separated out from the current
code and restricted to the toy API in some fashion. It's fine if cairo_show_text()
supports fontsetting, but cairo_scaled_font_t needs to remain clearly a single
