I would prefer to have them from the font themselves, but in any case
from the point of view of the API this means you are diverging from what
common X fonts can provide. So my question really was: can you make
pango provide this very font-specific information so that it nicely fits
pango architecture and doesn't clutter it with details that only pertain
a very small subset of all fonts?

Yes, I know that appendix very well, as it was fundamental for
understanding TeX formatting rules which I largely implemented in
