I am no expert in fonts, but your solution is beautiful visually. I like the
idea of doing it all in Smalltalk too. If I recall the earlier discussions,
there was some worry about the memory requirements for a large number of
fonts, but I should think that a clever person might come up with a solution
based on ImageSegments, and this seems much more appealing than a dependency
on external code libraries.
