    It's possible that in a few years, the LCD monitors will have a higher
    resolution so that larger font sizes (in pixels) will be used for typical
    screen presentation. More pixels -- less elaborate hinting required.

    I don't think hinting will completely go away, but I'm sure the necessity to
    tweak single pixels will gradually disappear.
