<p>If set, it indicates that you want these functions to fail if the corresponding hinting mode or font driver doesn't allow for very quick advance computation.</p>
<p>Typically, glyphs which are either unscaled, unhinted, bitmapped, or light-hinted can have their advance width computed very quickly.</p>
<p>Normal and bytecode hinted modes, which require loading, scaling, and hinting of the glyph outline, are extremely slow by comparison.</p>
