If no font is specified, a BDF font is read from standard input (stdin).
Do not crop glyphs. This usually increases file size, but may
sometimes yield a modest decrease in file size for small character
cell fonts (terminal fonts).
Write byte-aligned glyph data. By default, unaligned data is written,
which yields a smaller file size.
Do not reencode fonts. By default, fonts are reencoded to Unicode

most current software. If

Some of the font-level values, notably sub- and superscript positions,
