I know how to fetch the characteristics of a font and its glyphs
by calling e.g. XLoadQueryFont(). But is there a way to get at
the actual, raw bitmaps, short of opening the font files in
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts by hand? (Yes, I realize that depending
on the kind of font, "getting the actual bitmaps" might not even
be meaningful. But for nonscalable, bitmapped fonts it certainly
could be.)
