Will do that.

You mean FontForge, right?

Well, the versions of FontForge which handle the lily fonts gracefully
can't be identified with such a simple comparison; for example, the
current CVS snapshot doesn't work fine since its main developer has
(once again) improved the algorithm of finding intersections, and
these improvements are still buggy.  What we can test for is to reject
versions which really fail.

Note that even `not gracefully' versions are usually sufficient for
Joe User since the problems are not visible.  In any case, the
problems don't affect the size of the lily glyphs.
