Hmm, let's consider the following: if you only have glyphs that are fine with fixed-width rendering, and if you have control over the rendering engine, how about pre-rendering (rasterize) the desired font to bitmaps with an alpha channel?
You'd have to handle the resizing and layout manually, however. It's easier to have whatever underlying library (GDI, FreeType, Cairo, etc.) do the job than positioning each tile, is it not?
