Very interesting, but what about enhancing the font bitmap structure to
carry antialiased fonts, and using FT_RENDER_MODE_NORMAL ?

cFont::Glyph(unsigned int c) const
error = FT_Render_Glyph( face->glyph, FT_RENDER_MODE_MONO );

I guess this would be fairly trivial to add once FT support is in, by
further modifying cBitmap::DrawText(), given some constraints on the OSD
