That's interesting.  Did you know about work currently under way 
involving Harfbuz to provide a small, universal rendering engine that 
can be used on mobile devices and other kinds of OS to do opentype 
rendering? [1]   Are you working on the same thing?  I'd hate to think 
that you are reinventing the wheel such that different systems are 
needed for different fonts...
