Let me start with a little bit about myself. I'm a font pendant. I hate
fonts that are rendered badly... with a passion. If something looks
awful I'm one of the first to complain (and often loudly). Over the
years, since freetype's inception, I've added my own hacks etc etc to
get something that I'm relatively comfortable viewing.

Welcome to the club. I decided to upstream my hacks ;)

But with the most recent freetype releases I am happy. Not 100% happy,
but happy enough that I don't feel the need to spend time mucking around
with source code and arcane invocations.

Do you mean the current releases plus this new minimal TrueType subpixel hinting thing or just the vanilla releases? If the latter, and you're using hintfull, I invite you to test my patches or wait until they are mainlined :)
