This is where we disagree :).  If it's non-trivial, it's even more non-trivial
for FreeType-using pieces of the stack...

I wouldn't think so.  It directly affects rasterization, and as we have
established in other threads, rasterizing using bytecode hinting with disregard
to gasp table can be problematic.  Sure, we can force all FreeType users to
implement gasp table handling, but I see it more fit in the library itself.
