It's now possible in xmobar because i had to introduce our own xft-lite
binding due to a separate issue (a problem with a memory leak on the
X-server side).  So it should be now possible to "patch" our internal
XFT with what was supposed to be a patch for xft... the relevant
patches, provided by Cedric Staub, and associated discussion is
available at our old issue tracker (but please, feel free to use
github's if need be):
