Hi Antoine,

  I already announced that I do not think that the OpenType
  support will make it for the 2.0 release, but will be added
  after this.

  So yes, it's time to think hard about the interface issues.
  My main ideas are that:

    - we load the tables "as is" from the file

    - we decode/process them in real-time, this is demonstrated
      by the current code

  Of course, that doesn't relate to the high-level interface at
  all :-(
