That's a good start, but I'd prefer to be using the Xft patch. To that
end, I found the patch and downloaded the wily sources, but the wily
sources I found were split across two tarballs - 9libs-1.0.tar.gz and
wily-9libs.tar.gz. The patch seems to be against a directory full of
files called wily-0.13.41, which has a quite different arrangement to
the tar balls I have once they've been extracted. Where do I get the
source in the form the patch expects? Or perhaps the patched source, or
even a .deb package?
