This is just unfair. FreeType is not paid by or owned by Google. You
started to use unreleased features. Also Google did not contribute
that code. This is wrong to pose such demands!

That is substantive. This would only create a problem if the layers
follow opposite convention: one fills to the left, one fills to the
right, i.e. it will break broken glyphs.

Again I am not paid by Google. to follow some arbitrary rules. But
thank you for testing.

Stop rolling with git head then.
