I suppose we still have time to add the suggested LOAD flag before the
2.7 release? IMO it should:

1) Switch on stem darkening
2) Change the default LCD filter weights as recommended on

Is this what it should do?

As for the name...

- FT_LOAD_LINEAR (probably too vague)

More bikeshedding about a good name? It should be short and unambiguous.

On another note, what happens if FT_LCD_FILTER_LEGACY is requested but
not compiled in? Does it fall back to NONE or DEFAULT?

Disturbingly, I still get the legacy filter (which sucks) unless I'm
explicitly requesting another in fontconfig. I can probably blame
