You are joking, aren't you?  You should read, for example, this

to see how the autohinter is (more or less) working.  On the other
hand, native bytecode hinting allows the interpreter to precisely move
points so that the outline gets rasterized optimally.

In general I think that the autohinter works *excellent* (thanks
David!), with some glitches here and there due to bugs still in the
code.  Additionally, some (non-latin) scripts don't work really well
because a proper autohinting module is still missing.
