TrueType hinting – auto stem doesn’t pick the closest, but the biggest TTF stem

Leading to funny things like this:

I’ve never been able to get multiple stem values to work properly. Is Glyphs still intended to only hint for a single value like it was when 2.0 was first released?

Is that a stated goal? I hint lots of different distances. Sometimes they are quite close in value (ex: controlling when a head serif drops below the x-height/ascender line vs. serif thickness), other times wildly different (ex. lowercase thins vs. height of superscript figures)

This was a bug and now I fixed it.
