I'd really prefer to drop libpango1.0-0 altogether, which is already
pending in git for experimental, rather than making the same source code
compile differently on Ubuntu.

This would break flashplugin-nonfree and qtile, but both of those are
RC-buggy already.

    % dak rm -R -n -b libpango1.0-0
    Checking reverse dependencies...
    # Broken Depends:
    flashplugin-nonfree/contrib: flashplugin-nonfree [amd64 i386]
    qtile: python3-qtile [amd64 arm64 armel armhf i386 mips64el mipsel ppc64el]

    # Broken Build-Depends:
    qtile: libpango1.0-0

I see Ubuntu is already tracking pango1.0/experimental, so hopefully
an upload of the current debian/master branch to experimental is enough
for you?
