           Summary: Allow customers to specify a serial number
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: master
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P4
         Component: Client API
        AssignedTo: support at artifex.com
        ReportedBy: ken.sharp at artifex.com

Various font foundries use the rip serial number to secure installed fonts.
Currently Ghostscript has the serial number hard-coded at build time, which is
obviously inconvenient as each installation would require a custom build with a
different hard-coded serial number.

Proposed; implement a gp_serialnumber method in the API and have zserialnumber
call it. This allows the possibility for custom serial numbers using a Digital
Rights Mechanism of choice, which many customers will already have.
