thanks for the reply.

Yes, we actually want to be able to render a complex non-Roman script
as part of a localized UI. We want to be able to handle scripts that
Microsoft does not yet support, such as Myanmar (Burmese). Pango does
handle these, because it supports SIL Graphite text rendering.

So, we'd need to get MWF to continue to use Pango when run on WIndows.
Perhaps one coud compile MWF to use Pango, on Windows, for rendering
