Good work, thanks. Patch applied with a couple of changes: I renamed
cairo_pdf_ft_font_remap_composite_glyph since it's only remapping one
glyph at a time and I added a comment about why the glyf table has to be
the first we write out.

Yes, but not subsetting. That shouldn't be a problem, though, since
Type1 fonts are restricted to 255 glyphs. My plan was to just embed the
Type1 font directly, but I haven't yet figured out how to get at the raw
font data given an FT_Face using the public freetype API.
