Yes, I admit that our subsetting algorithm could be more efficient.
While this is generally not a problem with ordinary TrueType
fonts, things are different for monster glyph collections like
Arial Unicode or CyberBit. We are aware of the problem,
and plan an update that will reduce the file size impact from
Arial Unicode to 50-60 kb - still more than in FOP but hopefully
already within reasonable limits. I will contact you privately
as soon as we get it ready (within few days).
