a question about hinting: I understand that to create a raster, I need to 
exact pixel relative positions so that the hinter can do it's work.
Is there functionality to create rasters under arbitrary transformations ? Can
I provide a rotation matrix and get a (correctly hinted) raster of a rotated 
glyph ?

and yet another about text processing: will you integrate at least the API for 
ligature information (I don't know how this processing is semantically done) ?
I understand that not all fonts provide such information but since for text 
such considerations are quite standard, I would expect that fonts not 
implementing it
would simpy return the unmodified string...
