Do not crop glyphs. This usually increases file size,
but may sometimes yield a modest decrease in file size for
small character cell fonts (terminal fonts).
Write byte-aligned glyph data. By default, unaligned
data is written, which yields a smaller file size.
Do not reencode fonts. By default, fonts are reencoded
to Unicode whenever possible.
Set the type of scalable glyphs that we write. If
n is 0, no scalable glyphs are written; this is legal
but confuses most current software. If n is 1, a
single scalable glyph (the undefined glyph) is written; this
is recommended, but triggers a bug in current versions of
FreeType. If n is 2 (the default), a
sufficiently high number of blank glyphs are written, which
works with FreeType but increases file size.
Set the type of scalable metrics that we write. If
n is 0, no scalable metrics are written, which may or
may not be legal. If n is 1, full metrics for a
single glyph are written, and only left sidebearing values
are written for the other glyphs. If n is 2, scalable
metrics for all glyphs are written, which increases file
size and is not recommended. The default is 1.

Some of the
font-level values, notably sub- and superscript positions,
are dummy values.
