0.13.41 is the baseline, and the 9libs version is the same thing with
minor changes and split version with 9libs. both versions are in sourceforge
for download. there is no patched distribution because i thought Xft patch is
an ad-hoc addition, a placeholder while waiting for something better. i'm not
putting it down, people who need it should use it as they see fit, i just
don't have a definitive 9libs version. there was some discussion of this 
in the past, but i have not received any further word on anyone wanting
to take on this.

if there is general consensus that further releases of wily should contain
the "Xft" patch, i guess i'll put it in until some future revision, so feel
free to comment.
