also, I should really add - it's not *just* patents. Freetype's own position is that they consider their autohinting code superior to the bytecode interpreter for most fonts, and many people agree with this. For instance, I personally prefer the output with the bytecode interpreter disabled to the output with it enabled. As I mentioned, font rendering is an extremely subjective issue, and it also differs from font to font and monitor to monitor.
