In Fedora rawhide I enabled the patented bytecode interpretter a while ago
since the patents expired.  I've received reports since that this has resulted
in degraded rendering of some fonts.

Apparently, from what I hear, with Medium hinting, the autohinter is not used
even if the font doesn't have any bytecode.

The desired behavior is to use the autohinter for any glyphs without bytecode

Please see:

Is there any way we can resolve this?  Otherwise I'd have to turn it back off
