swfc works only with Unicode, and relies on Freetype to convert the font
encoding to Unicode.
I.e., a ".font" object is only mapping chars to unicode and name (and vice
versa), but not to any other specific encoding.

I'll probably add encoding markers to the swffont output soon, so that
one can study the char->unicode mapping more easily (swffont uses the
same font code as swfc).
