   Yes. I see that code. And you are right that code has been in Qt for ages. I
even tested few new Indic languages based on Devanagari script successfully in
QT where that code file has no mention for those new Indic languages like
maithili language.
   Ok. your point looks also right that it looks for "pa" and fontconfig
currently knows only pa_IN.

Ok. Lets wait for Than and Behdad then.
