It seperates the letters in a font at runtime, not at compile
time. Even worse it does somewhat generate the letters on demand, so
if I print something and it contains a not yet used letter, this will
cause a noticable break in the game flow.

The font splitting is also to simple, overlapping-cursive fonts and
similar things are not possible.

And that one gets a CL_Font* instead of a refcounted CL_Font, not sure
if thats still the case or already fixed.

Animated fonts (ala Yoshi Island) would also be nice to have.
