I would, if I had the skills... :-/ Really, I only know PHP and a little C++/ 
Qt, that's about it. The only patch for Wine I've written so far added a few 
additional PCI IDs for wined3d, and that was also the first time I ever 
touched plain C. ;-)

My mail was more about the link to the glyph table, as it seems to be pretty 
much undocumented, in case that's the reason it wasn't implemented.
