A longer time ago Jungshik Shin has sent an algorithm to this list how
to detect the isFixedPitch flag properly (2003-06-05).  It's quite
complicated and increases the size of the library quite a lot, IIRC,
so we've never implemented it.  Detecting CJK fonts is not easy.  I
suggest to always use the FT_LOAD_IGNORE_GLOBAL_ADVANCE_WIDTH flag and
use a similar code to the ftchkwd demo program (from ft2demos) on the
user level.

But maybe there's a good guy who provides a service function...
