Hi Jens,

Your recent changes are certainly in the right direction
and help bring xforms from the 1990s into the 21st century.
I say go ahead with the changes.  Any difficulties that may
cause with existing code is temporary and will be ironed out.

   the new development versions, using true/open type fonts
as well as supporting UTF-8, have been available for some
time now and, while they're not yet perfect, I think they
(or at least the newer ones) are mostly usable.

   I hope that you've made up your mind if the new features
are a good thing to have or not. My question to you is: would
you consider them as something that makes XForms a better (or
at least more useful) library? Or would you say that they are
not worth getting included or are even breaking too many things,
making the new version unusable for your purposes? I know that
there are issues due to texts being a bit wider with the new
fonts, which might break UIs of existing programs, which, ad-
mittedly, can be a PITA...

   As it's definitely not my intention to force a version onto
you that many consider to be too disruptive or just simply un-
necessary, I'd like to ask you for a bit of feedback on how you
feel about it. That will help me decide if I should spend more
time on it or better stop. So, please, let me know what your
thoughts are!
                          Best regards, Jens
