Eh, I meant what I wrote. ;)  Acrobat Distiller used to write out
CFF fonts that used at most 5 arguments to endchar to make a composite
glyph.  The arguments are exactly those of seac, excepting the
sidebearing (because Type 2 doesn't supply the sidebearing point),
and the advanced width (as a difference against NominalWidth)

It is in the Type 2 spec. as being deprecated.  It is not yet implemented
in ft2.  MM support in CFF fonts is another issue; MM CFF fonts never
got released.  kludged endchar fonts did, so ft2 should support them.

Yeah, sounds about right...
