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
two licenses that come with FreeType? Reason is that Apache 2.0 is
not compatible with GPL2.
