Not just blurry, though -- awkwardly blurry. At screen resolution, in fact,
I think it's pushing it to even say that the blurriness makes better shapes
-- there's not enough pixels to make that work. The font has no bytecode, so
it's not being hinted.
But generally, if font looks bad hinted when using BCI, it's most
a bug in font, but when BCI is not present we need to fall back to
autohinter, not just turn off the hinting.
Absolutely. I'm not opposed to the BCI, just opposed to failing to autohint
non-bytecoded glyphs when the feature is enabled.
