Which reminds of that what I'm not seeing in any of the font or font 
subsetting code is anything about kerning... is kerning a lost art with 
modern scalable fonts, or is it just not bothered with except in 
high-end typesetting applications?  I sort of expected to find some 
kerning tables in the fonts, but haven't. At least, not yet.
