I'm not sure I can parse this properly.  I assume you mean you use
ctwm, therefore you are limited to bitmap fonts for ctwm, therefore
you suffer from using bitmap fonts (at least for ctwm) on high-DPI?

BTW, why don't we use a WM that *does* grok scalable fonts in the
first place if high-DPI, large TVs etc are indeed a concern? :) We do
ship with ttf rasterizer in the base.
