FWIW, this problem was the main reason that under my maintenance, we didn't
enable the bytecode interpreter.

I think the default should remain as not using the bytecode, and use
fontconfig config to whitelist fonts.  Or use fontconfig to blacklist...

To be honest, I don't fully agree with upstream.  Autohinter and bytecode
*can* be used together.  The results won't be optimal, but much better than
the current output.  Maybe someone can bring up the multi-script font use case
with upstream and convince them to reconsider.
