Oh! I didn't realize that I was in the explicit CC list; since I never 
worked with font rendering stuff closely, I even didn't consider myself 
as a potential mentor. Sorry, but I don't have required skills. But of 
course, I'm ready to answer any questions in the course of the project 
(be it GSoC or otherwise) as much as I have knowledge. I consider this 
task an important thins, so it's in my scope of interest.

Best regards,
Mike Kaganski
