I have to admit that I have no idea what it's exactly about, so
I would have to do a bit of learning first;-) Since I am a bit
short on time at the moment I can't make promises, but if it's
a good way to get around font problems I definitely will take
a closer look at it as soon as possible. Can you tell me if it
is available on all UNIX systems? I wouldn't like to introduce
a dependency that's hard to satisfy (or needs a lot of work to
install properly) for non-Linux users...
