Is it possible with PIL to use the bold and italics of a ttf font if
there are no bold or italics fontfile present on the system. 
My application Phatch let the user choose from all installed font files
from a drop down list. For example the font Purisa does not have ttf
files for bold or italics but openoffice manages to create these fonts

Is there a solution for pil to modify ttf fonts to bold or italics? Or
is this impossible?
