With hintfull, there is also a little “rainbow effect” when
subpixel hinting is used.

See my screenshot in comment#114, left side.

Of course it is much less obvious then with the other options
(hintmedium, hintslight, hintnone). But is still visible.

For me, even this little bit of colours is too much already, I prefer
the result in the screenshot in comment#115 on the left, i.e. sharp
byte code hinting without subpixel hinting, only gray-scale.
