The Qt code doesn't convert to Type1, but to to either Type42 or Type3. 
Type3 is allowed as a "fallback" in case the target rasterizer doesn't 
support Type42 (Type3 defines glyphs in terms of the basic Postscript 
operators and has been supported far longer than Type42 (forever?)).

The original author of the code is Sivan Toledo (stoledo tau ac il) who
wrote the code on his own time for use with Qt.  He's a nice guy and will 
almost certainly let stick an MIT license on it so it can be shipped with
