Font hack - TODO

Current CVS now loads the Feta font through OTF files and
FreeType. The hack is working for the basic postscript output.

Things to do:

 * make an OTF of feta-braces. When this works, we can junk virtual
   fonts/AFM support inside lily

 * figure out a way to export glyphs to TeX; the TeX backend doesn't
   yet support a named-glyph primitive.

Proposal: have generate a .tex definition file.
Currently, dumps


This should be extended to have 


When loading the OTF font for the TeX backend, the TeX backend will

  \font\fetafont feta20 scaled ....
  \font\parmesanfont parmesant20 scaled ...

the PFA fonts (feta20, parmesan20) contained within an OTF is read
from a SFNT separate table, VIRF (virtual font), which is put there

When this works, it should be possible to run make web once again,
at which point we should release 2.5.4.
