I have attached my personal fonts.conf, it enables native (Y-axis) grid-fitting for CFF fonts and the Y-axis autohinter-grid-fitting for everything else. Also, RGB subpixel rendering if compiled in and the light LCD filter to counter the blurriness of non-gamma-corrected glyphs somewhat. Modify as you see fit. Note the "autohint" property, it changes the meaning of hintmedium and full!

Contributing per-font-format settings for fontconfig is still on my todo list :) I actually have them already, I just need to add comments so people know what's going on in them and why.

Oh, and thanks Werner! Soon, users will see... changes. I'm already bracing for impact :D

Cursory valgrind --tool=callgrind checking found that FT_Embolden_Outline is somewhere in the top something of CPU hoggers, by the way. So there definitely is a performance impact. I hope the fuzzing will get us more precise data, as I'm still a noob at performance analysis. So much to do, so little time...
