That would be awesome. For me it's especially important, because square fonts are very hard to read longer texts in, so I designed the font in a way that looks strange, but has very narrow space between letters in a word to help the eye organize characters in lines, rather than in columns. And so any extra horizontal space makes all that effort moot.

Yes, you are right, glyphs larger than the official size is not a lie, especially with some capital letters with two (!) accents over them, one over another. However, I specifically did not add such letters and for others mimicked the approach in older Angband fonts, by making accented capital letters lower and the accents on them smaller than on lowercase letters.

BTW, the code I mentioned is here, in case I mixed up details (and I did --- I resize surfaces, not textures): https://github.com/LambdaHack/Lambda...nd/Sdl.hs#L349

Edit: and I probably resize instead of cropping...
