That's what i have done and i'm satisfied with it but Gerardo speaks about
problems with kpdf and poppler when this patch is included. This is why i'm
suprised about it and the freetype authors seems to be satisfied with the
auto-hinting too.

The license is not my first intension and i think the most distributions
activate the bytecode interpreter.

Still again, i only discuss and don't say "we have to do". -)

See you, Attila
