>|Nicolas has explained a few times on the mailing list: if we "fix" the fonts 
there will be less of an incentive to fix the applications, and will take 
considerably longer to be fixed.

So I guess all of the following bug fixes in the past explain why the Firefox
developers haven't been interested in font-stretch :+)

* Fri Aug 10 2007 Than Ngo <than at redhat.com> - 2.4-1

  to original metrics. bz#243180, bz#138896, bz#140584
