That is very interesting. Maybe it's a configuration thing? I'm on
ArchLinux, which usually ships packages with default configuration. Maybe
your distro has done some clever tweaking to FreeType / FontConfig to improve
things? I'd be interested in a screenshot, if you could spare one.

I guess so. I know that many KDE people have complained that not enough bug
reports & patches are sent upstream from the large distros (e.g. Ubuntu,
OpenSUSE, Fedora). However, I may be ill-informed, so I defer to your far
more extensive experience :)

OK, well you're in charge and the decision is of course yours to make. I know
you're very busy right now, so I won't hassle you any further :)
Thanks for your time,
