I'm looking into the licensing question and will get back to you soon.

A big thank you, Graham!  Very much appreciated.  I don't know yet,
however, when I will find some time to work on it.

In case you want to do further integration into FreeType, please post
your results here :-)

Regarding the license: Raph, would it be possible to add
dual-licensing with GPL2 to the C code, or to change the C code to the

not compatible with GPL2.
