At present, FreeType2's compress font file I/O is designed for
the case that "whole of font file" is compressed as single stream.
On the other hand, WOFF will request the per-table decompression.
The easiest support would be done by the construction of the
sfnt font file image by using zlib, and pass it to FT_Face_New().
I wish if I could have a time to write a code to parse WOFF without
making a whole uncompressed font image...
