It doesn't say anything about being identical to OS X's metrics, and I 
don't need them to be.  The APIs referenced (there is a URL in the BZ 
entry for that bug) make TTF *screen* and *printer* metrics identical 
under Windows (effectively eliminating the need for formatForPrinting 
when using TTFs exclusively, a restriction which suits me just fine).
