Hi Johan!

I have just committed the v_getbitmap_info() and vqt_xfntinfo() FT2
equivalents. Now the Papyrus font selector almost works.

Could you please do the pt<->pixel math for me as I have somehow
failed to find out the right formula. I feel like if I was really
loosing my high school education knowledge there ;((.
