Maybe I misread the patch, but I thought I saw things like
CAIRO_LCD_FILTER_FIR3 being added to cairo.h.
If the patch is just hooking up fontconfig-configured items to freetype,
then I have no place to object about the naming, (since it's happening
entirely outside of cairo). In that case, I'll agree with you that
it's just an internal issue.

Absolutely. That's why I said "that's just my opinion".

Recognizing my non-objectivity, I also said that I would accept having
configuration options in cairo to support people with different opinions
that want different behavior.
