But the proposed patch, to which you agreed, did precisely that: it
singled out a particular font where the ascent/descent information was
to be ignored (and suggested to extend the list if needed).  How's
that different from what Stefan proposes?  And what's wrong with
maintaining a list of fonts that are known to misbehave?  There a lot
of broken fonts out there, and so far we relied on users configuring
the fonts on their machines to avoid negative effects, something
that's not always possible.
