Than you for the suggestion. It is indeed an important issue.
I confess that it is not easy to satisfy this requirement
in the current architecture: parsing fonts strongly requires
random access to the font file, so the only alternative to file
I/O is to load the whole font into memory. It is doable,
but requires many changes in the code (and may entail
a considerable memory penalty). In any case, we will
keep it present when making plans for the future.
