I now understand I can:

* Use fontforge ascii file or unified font object to
  describe glyphs using a text file;

* Use some other tool to create an image for a glyph
  and then use a tracer to make it into an ouline
  description for a glyph;

* Use fontforge to add OpenType specific tunning.

Using those options, can I do everything I want with
fonts? Like japanese kanji, or arabic text where the
shape of a glyph depends on next and previous ones?
