early in the F13 cycle, we enabled the bytecode interpreter in our

Unfortunately, it turned out that many free fonts don't actually benefit
from this, and actually look worse with the bci. The reason for that is
that without the bci, freetype uses its autohinter on all fonts, but
with the bci turned on, it only applies hints to fonts which have them,
and leaves other fonts alone.
Are Xft/Cairo patched for ClearType ?
If less is more than more, most is more than less.
