It is clear from that comment that multiple glyphs can be passed to that
function, but it is not clear that metrics is a single struct. I
originally implemented it as if metrics was an array of length nglyphs,
but the implementation in xftfont.c seems to suggest a single struct.

font.c:1948 nglyphs=1, metrics=NULL
font.c:3726 nglyphs=i, metrics=NULL

font.c:2012 nglyphs=1, metrics=&metrics
font.c:3642 nglyphs=1, metrics=&metrics
