Yes, definitely.

It's basically a bug in fontforge, but we can't rely on a quick fix
since this is very unlikely.  Additionally, we rely on the last
*published* fontforge version, which was a released quite a long time
ago.  Meanwhile, fontforge has been very heavily modified.
Unfortunately, not all modifications are bug free; for example, I
can't build the feta fonts with current fontforge's current git
version due to a very fundamental bug, cf.


The solution to the clef problem is not too difficult, however: We
have to slightly modify the outlines of the clefs so that the
intersections are `simpler', allowing fontforge to handle the outline
correctly.  While reviewing Marc's patch I've only checked one size
(feta20), which was an oversight.

Marc, do you have time to work on that?
