Well i disagree with the integers thing, mostly because which integers choo=
1, 2, 3, 4, ..? That is the same as an enum, the other possiblity is using=
the same integers fontconfig uses, that has two different problems:

 -  First, we have to either include fontconfig.h in this file to be able o=
doing the assignment or copy the numbers at hand. Including fontconfig just=
for this does not seem right as this class as nothing to do with fontconig,=
in the other side copying the numbers by hand is just plain wrong.

 - Second, there is not a 1 to 1 match between the values that fontconfig h=
and the values the pdf spec has, we have to choose the correspondence=20
somewhere but again this file does not seem the right place to do that.
