Subject: multifont?


From: Jonathan Gordon <>

OK, this was talked about a bit in IRC today but I want to get more of
an answer (the topic came to a halt :p )

I think everyone agrees that having a single buffer to hold as many
fonts as the user wants (up to a reasonable number) is the best way to
go, but this has been the case for as long as I can remember and
nothing has happened.

I now have a patch which works and is almost finished, but it uses
separate buffers for each font (coming from the skin buffer, not new
buffers) which I feel is a good enough solution until someone comes
along and does the work to make it all into one buffer.

So here is the question. Is there enough opposition to going about it
this way (separate buffers for each font) that someone will put up
their hand and do the work so its done properly? Or are we happy to
have this "good enough" solution for the time being?

This "good enough" version by the way is in no way hacky or anything,
its just not the best solution. (FS#10984 by the way)
