Well, it depends on what you mean by "legacy fonts". If you are talking about bitmap (non-tt) fonts then those would of course always render jaggy. Any ttf fonts with (semi-good) instructions should render with subpixel hinting under Freetype like they would with Windows w/Cleartype. (The goal is to render them similarly to the MS rasterizer, and potentially even better!)
Yes, that might be worth mentioning somewhere. I know that some major distros like OpenSUSE are planning on using subpixel hinting by default now that it's in Freetype. Other distros have packages that are available too. More people will likely be using subpixel hinting now that it's in Freetype, so having documentation as to "what settings do what" might be good. If you need me to help you out with that, I'd be more than willing. I do have my git repo of "fontconfig-infinality" which contains TT fonts that I know work well with subpixel hinting. Perhaps that could be somehow incorporated into fontconfig itself, now that subpixel hinting is in Freetype??
