Hi Marco,

nice research & writeup - I wonder if some distilled version of that
would be possible as a README in filter/source/svg - always good to
preserve rationale for later hackers looking at the code. ;)

Given the contraints, I agree with your conclusion, but would like
to ask you to make the choice between absolute glyph positions (and
native font runs) configurable (can be a hidden config item or
somesuch). Since it's a rather nasty tradeoff, for high-fidelity
presentations, given my past experience, people would probably
prefer exactly-rendered text ...
