Probably not. I don't know. But that's not my point. There are better ways
to make smaller CJK fonts than MM, and *maybe* it's better to invest in a
new FT-specific font format than in an almost dead Adobe format. Once FT2
is stable, and once there is a good high level layout API, FT2 is a true
killer lib. Maybe it'll be so big it can afford to have it's own font
