Support of EBDT and EBLC truetype table highly needed.

Python fonttools are used in my MetaType project for
creating TTF fonts from Metafont sources. For low-
ppem resolutions I plan to include bitmap data into
fonts. Unfortunately, there is no support for
EBDT/EBLC in fonttools right now.

    Heh, just by coincidence I see someone actually used
    the tracker!
    Unfortunately, I have at the moment to use for these
    tables, so you either have to contribute the code
    yourself, or find someone to do it for you. It's not unlikely
    that eventually I *will* add these tables, it's just not
    going to be "soon". Sorry!

    Will it be supported in the future? I think just a simple structure that indicates bitmap refers to a glyph is enough for me.

    Support for EBLC/EBDT has been submitted on the patches page. It hasn't been added yet but it is still possible to play with the implementation by applying the patch to a local copy.
