Unfortunately we can't check in the font.
That would require us to obtain a 3rd party code license and to update
the font regularly as new versions are created.
Way too onerous.

Perhaps instead you can just run through installed fonts ?

Can you also add a comment that explains that the values
you are using match those in freetype 2.6 -> current (2.9.1) ...

And consequently I think you should update the values used by 
at the same time to match current freetype. The current value is from
the ancient 2.3 release. Include a comment there too ..

Also can you check you are keeping line lengths including comment
lines < 80 chars where possible ?
