Actually, I'm thinking about backporting this feature to freetype 2.5.4
which I'm currently using in my app. I'd like to avoid upgrading to the
latest freetype because I'm using a customized version of freetype
and so updating to the latest freetype is rather a lot of work. 

Thus, I'd like to check first if I can have the new feature easier. 
So is this the patch you're talking about?

If it is, I'd first try to backport this to freetype 2.5.4 and see
if it solves the problem...
