There are also the problems of:
1. the many partially hinted fonts that exist : the bytecode interpreter should
be used for hinted glyphs, and the autohinter for others, preferably at a
setting consistent with whet the bytecode interpreter does
2. the way bytecode interracts with fontconfig/gnome smoothing preferences:
with bytecode on, you need to change the gnome prefs to get the closest
approximation of the previous settings. It does not autoset the closest one
itself (this is going to annoy a lot of users)
