QFontEngine: Add handle() function
Both QFont::handle() and QFont::freetypeFace() used to be available in Qt 4 but were removed in Qt 5. There's currently no API to get access to the native font handle, which the font engine holds in a way or another. Similar to the way it was in Qt 4, the actual handle type depends on the font engine currently in use. The types map as follows: Font Engine Native Handle ------------------------------------ DirectWrite IDWriteFontFace * Freetype FT_Face Mac CTFontRef Win HFONT All other font engines return a null handle.
