This is of course quite possible, and I'll include this in the next

But I'd recommend making Freetype mandatory because image quality is not
as good with the other options. Freetype is better at hinting. Also,
using Freetype is the only way to get subfont support (CJK). At this

fallbacks. From what I can understand, both texlive and MIKTeX include
