  I reconsidered how to get strike_index, and found the way
to use sfnt->set_sbit_strike().   Therefore, we now need only the 
support of sfnt->find_sbit_image() and sfnt->load_sbit_metrics()
function in tt_driver_class.   I propose the Patch C:

  Patch C(freetype2 part only):
  Patch C(full patch for XFree86-4.4.0):

  Consider the patch, please...

  If my proposal is rejected, we cannot but duplicate
find_sbit_range(), load_sbit_metrics() and find_sbit_image()
into FreeType backend.  We do not want to carry out such a 

  Please, please consider the patch...
