    I wouldn't object to somebody (or me) spending some time uptreaming the new rasterisation backend of FontVal and creating a python binding to that freetype diagnostics code on the way, and share it with fonttools. It is just that I would not move it away from being FontVal-friendly, which is what I am afraid of if I put the code out in the open too early.
  • Thanks for the suggestion Hin-Tak :) Rasterisation bugs are not high on my agenda, though =)
