Sorry, I thought you meant the OM version control system (but that's 
git). I'm not sure this patch would be appreciated upstream because a 
regular computer is fast enough to redraw the map while panning. 
Concerning the font caching part, it is not yet done and does not 
provide a lot of benefits in its current state. I'll send it upstream 
as soon as I consider it ready.

As for applying the patch to the debian package: Make sure you use 
revision 1255 from svn as the patch was written against this version.
