As per the title I am aiming to investigate a much nicer conky default, I have a short list, but it depends on asking people nicely to license there work, if I have to create something from scratch it probably won't happen this hackweek.

Now that themes such as Polycore are licensed so they are useable the aim is to build from there.

The first sticking point for this hackweek is getting Cario to render text better, typically this can be done with Freetype and Harfbuzz but not from Lua, This could maybe be done with the ffi bindings although these are all somewhat unmaintained so extending conky's bindings is probably the smartest way forward.

Looking for hackers with the skills:
