I'm currently working on a perl project that uses Gimp.pm (2.0) to render fonts. Using the gimp manually, I am able to turn hinting on and off (and save this option in my tool options).

When I use gimp_text_fontname() to do this in perl, it appears that font hinting is turned on by default, and there is no parameter to pass to gimp_text_fontname to disable it. The PDL call also ignores the tool options.

I'm interested in adding this functionality to the PDL call if possible, or at least figuring out how to disable hinting at some other level... are there any design considerations/pointers about this before I start rooting around in the code, or perhaps someone else is already working on the PDL call and this could be added to the wishlist?
