Hi all,

Eric Seidel came along in #qtwebkit and asked about QRawFont because
he is trying to simplify the number of flags in the SVG part of
webkit. The bad guy is ENABLE_SVG_FONTS which we unable only with Qt
4.8 (as it depends on the fast font path) of course if he removes this
flag it means that for builds prior to Qt 4.8 the entire SVG module
will be deactivated. I'm not sure if that's acceptable or not. In the
other hand I don't think we should investigate on how to make
ENABLE_SVG_FONTS work with 4.7 if that's even possible. Who will run
trunk on top of Qt 4.7? Will that be a supported path for a long time?
We previously agreed that we will drop the layout tests of 4.7 as soon
as 4.8 is out but what about the builds and the features like this?
