It is not true. At least there is no code to infect charspace depending on

It's to handle alpha map (as the char width with alpha is 8 pixel wider
then the character itself)

it handles them equally.

yes, i agree. and also we could add vertical bitmap start,end and origin.
of course the bitmap start must be 8-pixel aligned then (for mmx).

can you implement it in subfont?
