    libXfont already uses FreeType to render OpenType, TrueType, and PostScript fonts, so using it for another font type isn't going to be much of a change either.

    Right, the way XAA was kept forever to avoid breaking the handful of people running on decade old cards with no one who cares enough to update/maintain their driver. Oh wait, sorry, that's a...

    I should have said "or software they run" - since no one can fully audit all of the source code for every binary they run, there are risks of software trying to sneak one past you, but that's true...

    If you start X with -nolisten tcp, as virtually all distros have done by default for years now, then pretty much all security holes in X in the past few years have been limited to people who can...
