Aah, good to know!

I think it would be best if your changes go into the `bohoomil'
repository!  Note that I can't accept the additional Infinality
patches in its current form – using environment variables is a bad
idea for such a low-level library as FreeType.

The right way would be to add `properties'
(cf. `FT_Property_{Set,Get}) that act on the various FreeType modules.
Erik promised to work on that, but he never did...  Maybe bohoomil is
