If it is all the same to you, I'd prefer it to say, but I guess I'll end up maintaining a revert in the FontVal fork. There is incentive in the FontVal backend to keep this, to match the Microsoft rastering backend.

Dear FreeType community,

We have just committed a forewarning about Infinality removal.

- TrueType interpreter version 38  (aka Infinality)  that was  first
  introduced about 10 years ago  in FreeType 2.4.11  is now deprecated
  and slated  to be removed in the next version.  TrueType interpreter
  version 40  has been  FreeType's default version  for  6 years now and
  provides an excellent alternative.  This is the last FreeType version

Please voice any concerns that you might have with this impending change.
