Opentype: CFF or Truetype?

Reported by Eric S | September 19th, 2010 @ 10:09 PM

Making a little conversion script based on Dave’s work ( http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.freedesktop.fonts/1741 ),
to generate font files from the UFO.

And I wondered: are these cubic or quadratic Bézier curves?

If I understand correctly, in the former case it would make more sense to generate Opentype with Postscript outlines, and in the latter Opentype with Truetype outlines.
