    Well as you may have noticed the GlyphLayout interface is _very_
close to the TextLayout interface.  The only really big advantage I
could see for you is that our implementation is more available to you
for subclassing/extending than the JDK implementation.

    You might also be able to leverage the code that we use to support
SVG fonts to have better control over kerning and ligatures.
Unfortunately the only code I can point you to for using the classes
is Batik it's self.

    Good luck.
