lost opening brace ?


in your 'povr' you made changes to the TrueTypeFont struct(ure), among them the
introduction of the 'file' member.
source/core/shape/truetype.h:125, in version _6e4ed6c2.

think this is really important, and useful, and so hope you will find the time
to "back-port".  (thank you, in advance)


regards, jr.
