* Description     : toolkit for curve design (font editor)

Spiro is a toolkit for curve design, especially font design, created by
Raph Levien. It is still experimental but very promising.

It contains a new spline implementation based on Euler spirals.

It includes python utilities for manipulating curves, a Bezier
optimizer, tools to do scan segmenting and compositing into letter
classes, suitable for tracing over.

It exports to fontforge SFD and uses Gtk2 and cairo.
