OK, then stick to 1.1.x for now and tell the CUPS developers of
your problems with 1.2.x (since any patch you'll develop will be
applied to the 1.2.x source).

Don't say that :-)  If you are not interested that's one thing, but

Yup, we need to let CUPS' developers know that we are looking to
add Arabic support as they might have ideas on how to do that
already.  Plus it would be ideal to get their buy-in on the idea.
