I assume that you are referring to bitmap fonts here. I don't think we have
anything implemented for such fonts right now, but if we were to do so, I
think the scheme remains the same as far as the rest of FOP is concerned.
IOW, the relationship between Font, Typeface, and TypefaceFamily is intact.
The Font object handles any peculiarities related to the particular point
size, regardless of their source.
