--- Comment #11 from Andrea Canciani <ranma42 at gmail.com> ---
I was wondering how this interacts with the fallback infrastructure...

We might need to perform the corresponding change
(CGContextShowGlyphsWithAdvances/CGContextShowGlyphsAtPoint ->
CTFontDrawGlyphs) in _cairo_quartz_init_glyph_surface(), but it currently
returns A8 surfaces.
I do not think that the changes needed to support colors in
_cairo_quartz_init_glyph_path() would be trivial.

AFAICT the current infrastructure does not really expect multi-color glyphs.
Behdad might be able to provide some more insight and directions about what is
the best way forward here.
