In an earlier post you mentioned that transformations of Type-1 fonts
probably requires a complete type-1 parser. Do you mean matplotlib's
ft2font is missing some functionality?

I don't think freetype has any support for modifying and outputting
fonts. Actually the transformations are probably just a matter of
locating and modifying the FontMatrix entry in the cleartext part of the
pfb file, but subsetting (to reduce file sizes) is more involved.
