I tried Cody's font files on my f13 box and put my nose to the screen.  I
didn't see any obvious problems running an htop session in yakuake(Konsole
renderer).

If I understand it correctly, this seems to be the breaking commit:

http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=liberation-fonts.git;a=commitdiff;h=bb59c4be0e046d067fe112f2440798629ebb47d5

"Re-generated SFDs from original TTFs with newer method".  I wonder if 'newer
method' introduced any other gremlins?  I'll re-add Caius, just in case.

So, is there any case where we'd want this font to work with the auto-hinter,
or is that just a nonsensical question?
