It is the plain win32 backend, first factor five in speed improvement -
eehm slowness decreasing - is done by chacheing the info from
subfont_has_glyph () in a hash table. I'll probably try a fixed size
array this evening ...
In fact I currently do prefer the win32-only backend. IHMO the font support
isn't that bad and I would like to keep dependencies low.
