The "with blue" and "no blue" renderings are surely different, in terms
of vertical alignment at the bottom, but it's not clear to me which is
actually _best_... the "no blue" rendering looks more even though.

What are the rules about vertical alignment with CJK fonts?  [Especially
at low resolutions, where many characters end up having wide flat
bottoms even if they're not flat at high resolutions.]

In particular, these two characters: "置者" look a bit unbalanced in the
"with blue" rendering, but look nicer to me in the "no blue" rendering
because at least their flat bottoms are aligned.
