Hi Adrian,

Thanks for the patch! It's nice to see the "this code is broken"
comments disappearing from the implementation. Kristian, could you
review this patch please?

And I wanted to also thank you, Adrian, for the good work on the font
backends to allow font-backend-independent subsetting of truetype
fonts [*]. Just let me know when we start not pushing your commits in
quickly enough and you'd like to start doing that yourself.

(The patches do also paper over the 7603 bug, but the bug will still
be there lurking afterwards.)
