QuickFont - Kerning Pairs done!

As per Tksuoran's suggestion, I've added Kerning pairs. These are calculated for both ordinary and texture fonts at load time.

The results are great! I can't believe how much better it looks, and I'm slightly shocked that I this slipped me by in the first release.

Here's a before and after image:

[edit] On second thought, justified text is probably not the best demonstration for kerning pairs, as extra pixel gaps are added / removed to get lines to fit anyway. Still, I think you get the idea, particularly with the severe ones like the "ro" and "ct" in the Introduction heading.
