Hi there,

I'd consider a font that depends on a specific hinting engine for proper
rendering as broken by design.

Freetype still allows for selection between native hinting and
auto-hinting. If one of both leads to significantly better results, we
could still enforce this hinting method for this font by means of a
fontconfig rule.
