 Not sure who you were saying that to, but I did raise that we should
 avoid the transition; perhaps I should have used stronger words

 I think you're mixing libdatrie and libthai above, not sure; I was
 proposing to:
 - change libthai/unstable to not cause linkage on libdatrie
 - rebuild pango against that to drop the datrie dep
 - upload new datrie
 - rebuild libthai against it

 Theppitak is upstream for datrie and libthai as well
