ok. I've changed this to do what Xft does (call FcUtf8ToUcs4 in a
loop) and also moved the cairo_ft_font_t to a private type, as carl
suggested. now there's just cairo_font_t in the public header, and the
ft-specific functions fail when passed something of the wrong
type. updated patch attached. anything else?

sure, but this is a large issue, and I think one which ought to remain
mostly in the backend. the lazy part of me would like to at least get
the API change landed into your CVS, so others might help out with
making its implementation correct / optimal.
