That's really neat! I did not even know that Bold and Italic versions
were possible; it was 2002-2003 when I implemented the support for
these fonts and I don't think you could do it then.

We'll try to add support for this into the next release. Things are
really busy now so if you don't see a checkin within 4 weeks, remind
me then...
