That's been the idea indeed.  Though for testing varous subsetters and paths a
font goes through, using a small fontforge source and generating various font
types from it works much better.  We can ship the generated ones in the
tarball or even import in git such that the fontforge dep is not bothering.

/me is still waiting for ickle to just do that :P

don't remember what the status is.  Adrian has been working on it.  For stroke
fonts though, Type3 is much more useful given that we don't have
stroke_to_path.  Right?
