Adding freetype developer Werner LEMBERG <wl@xxxxxxx> to CC:.

Werner, is it correct that the width of strings changes if the autohinter is
used?

As you can see in comment #43 this seems to make it impossible to check
whether "一二三四五六七八九零" is twice as wide as "1234567890" in
xterm
because the result may depend on the hinting settings.

And this is the reason why the OpenOffice developers currently force hinting
to be off in OpenOffice.

Is it really OK that the autohinter changes the width of strings?
