> Currently all fonts (except a limited set of native fonts) are rastered for 
> PCL output. This has the problem of the documents being large in size and 
> should FOP be used in the cloud, rendering to PCL would not be possible as 
> it's using AWT.
> This patch in part resolves this problem by converting TrueType fonts to PCL 
> soft fonts. This allows the size to be much smaller and has been a standard 
> feature since PCL 5.
