I can't stand doing text layout code. It's so clunky and rube goldberg like. I've been working in dribs and drabs over days on getting my graphics library to support VLW fonts as a compromise between truetype vector and non-antialiased raster.

One issue is, since I only supported a couple of different font styles so far I didn't really need a generalized layout system, but now with 3 different font formats it would be beneficial to make the fonts use a universal system for laying out text.

But the big problem for me is the code is boring and tedious, like hand written parsing code tends to be. Can't bear code like this.
