Oops. My mistake.

Yes, the statement above is correct. That quartz and atsui are
disabled by default is intentional. We want people to be presented with
the warning about the experimental state of these backends, (including
no API guarantees), before building them, and we want people to
explicitly acknowledge that by --enable options.

Sorry about the misinformation on my part.
