TODO
====

* select face ie italic, bold etc

* Multiple sizes

* Optimise performance and mem usage.

* Use the Freetype Cache mechanism. FTC_xxx

* Multiple Masters

* String Cache or string chunks

* Provide an interface to access the point data for outlines and
  polygon meshes. Part way there with new vectoriser.

* Have a look at improving the algorthm for making curves. Maybe a
  distance metric might be the way to go so that rather than having 5
  polylines (0.2 step) for every curve, adjust the fineness for the
  length of the curve. But then you should also test the angle of the
  tangents as well.  Jed's new bezier stuff.

* Guard classes - vectoriser

* Move the init code out of the glyph constructors into an init
  function so that they can return errors.

* Get rid of frontPointList and backPointList!

* Use fontconfig (optionally) to support more than one font (for non-latin
  scripts). We can do that without changing the API.
