(Though it's really not as simple as that story makes it seem,
why we didn't do it for F13. Bytecode interpreting only helps fonts
which are actually designed with bytecode interpreting in mind. Some of
the fonts we use have been designed more with the use of autohinting in
mind, and look worse if you just use bytecode interpreting everywhere. I
believe the idea for F14 is to try and determine which fonts should use
which method in some way.)
Yeah. If you look at the "with bytecode" and "without bytecode"
in the above bug, you'll see Inconsolata become very ugly.
