Before making such claims I'd suggest to investigate first history behind
creation of Tahoma font replacement in Wine, and at least read its copyright
statement. Then you may try to investigate the reasons of bitmap glyph sets,
and what happens without them. Once the investigation step is done you may
try to add glyphs one by one which cover all the discovered issues.
