[ft] Open files

Hi freetypers,

I'm using FT_New_Face() with pathnames, to manage faces. It seems though,
that until I call FT_Done_Face() the file is left open.

Looking through the code for FT_New_Face(), this seems to be true. My
platform has a limited number of file descriptors, and I've got about 20
fonts that I want to have access to, so this means I'm holding onto 20 open

Is there anyway to tell freetype to close these files and reopen at will
when pulling out the glyphs? I'm willing to take the hit for that.

Perhaps I'm missing something. Thanks in advance.
