Hi All,

This is a vote to merge the temporary branch for adding PCL soft font support 
to FOP trunk.

What this allows for are TrueType fonts to be converted into a PCL native font 
format. This moves FOP away from using AWT and rasterized characters allowing 
for PCL output to potentially be generated over a cloud, better rendering 
quality and smaller documents. Other font formats will still be rasterized but 
TrueType will now default to being converted for PCL output.

If you want to give it a try please do. The branch can be found here:


This vote wll last 6 days (as I'm unavailable this weekend) and will conclude 
next Monday. 

Here is my +1.
