Well, currently i am trying to approach text rendering from fresh
perspective, and it would be nice to look how you did it.

In Cuis, i see a lot of clean up, but it is still more or less same,
years old model.
My main interest is text layout , not rendering, since rendering will
be done differently.

The problem with current text rendering, that it tries to optimize
very hard towards using primitive(s) which can blit
raster font glyphs in a loop.
But once you start using freetype, all those optimization are useless
and serve only for increase in complexity.
