The idea is that the "unpatented hinter" will be compiled in the default
build, though the auto-hinter will still be used to load the glyphs; that
is, *except* if the TrueType face loader determines that the font file
corresponds to one of the few well-known "trick" fonts.
Could anyone remind me what these fonts are, and where I could find them
for analysis and testing ? I believe that nearly all of them were designed
by DynaLabs, but I'm a bit unsure about that.
Not 100% sure this is the same problem, but here is a CJK font fragment
from a PDF file that
exhibits nasty behavior unless
(and hinting not disabled).
This is from a ft-devel list thread from 8/2004 titled "Glyph Oulines
Has Low Quality"
