Unfortunately, it seems your patch isn't reachable. Maybe a server
problem ? Could you send it privately to me and Werner for review ?

Thanks again,

Opinions ?

  Would you apply the patch A or B before release?

  Patch A:

  Patch B:

  I've maintained the "FreeType" backend of XFree86 server to
support CJK environment mainly. As you know, the implementation of X's Core Font is somewhat old, so we need to devise improvements
and program it.  One of results is using non-public API of freetype2
library.  Using non-public API brought about an important optimization
for loading-speed of CJK fonts. But this is a problem when using dynamic linking. I want to solve this problem.

  Here is full patchs for XFree86-4.4.0:



  These patch adds minor changes of sbit functionalities(sfnt.h,
ttsbit.c and ttsbit.h) and add a public function to ftxf86.c.

  At least FT_Get_SBit_Strike_Index() of patch B is indispensable
for us.  Please consider the patches....
