FW: [ft] cache manager

Hi there.
I am reposting this to the list since I got not a single response.  Maybe 
something went wrong.  These are issues of some importance.
1) is important in our application since the node ID is actually a strong 
reference to an application object that needs to be released when the CM 
doesn't know about it any more.
2) is perhaps more important.  The CM is only truly useful if one can hook into 
its loading and transformation stage to provide custom slanting and embolding 
and perhaps other effects.  Somewhere in the archives someone mentioned 
subclassing in this context.  Any more infor on that?

Subject: [ft] cache manager

Hello there.
I am new to this list although I have been using freetype for a while now.
So, please excuse me if this has been covered before.

I use the cache manager interface to freetype for convenience.  However, there 
are two things there which I find sorely missing:

1) I need CM to tell me when a node goes out of cache.
2) I need to be able to hook into the glyph rendering process so that I can 
provide gransformations for the glyph before caching.  This is to allow me to 
embolden and slant the glyph, for example.

Is there a way to do this?  Or is it simple to enhance freetype to support this?
