They seem to support a freetype backend, which is what I used in the past,
too. It supports both, anti-aliasing as well as hinting. As said before,
high quality requires hinting to be used, which makes the glyphs' size
(sub-pixel) position-dependent. This means that text composites need to
have some special logic to absorb the differences, if ever we want for
them to be device-independent.
