    We could do multi-pass Bentley-Ottmann or add a tolerance-square

+ * Improve bitmap-to-vector glyph conversion
+   As per usual, John Hobby has a few words of advice on the subject:
+   [Generating automatically tuned bitmaps from outlines](http://plan9.bell-labs.com/who/hobby/89_2-17.pdf)
  * Fix vertical metric and TrueType subsetting:
    Text drawn with vertical metrics cannot currently use TrueType
