I would expect that for at least very first time that functions will
fail for bitmap fonts and return glyph data in GGO_BEZIER format for
Type1 fonts. Later we can add cubic <-> quadratic spline conversion
routines and some special handling for bitmap fonts. Most applications
don't use or provide advanced vector graphics at all. As a side effect
of adding support for bitmap fonts will be retired x11drv font support.
and a possibility for real WYSIWYG in printing.
