Josefin sans Italic type italic improvements josefin sans font google

Work on the Google Fonts Improvement project continues!
Circling back to Josefin Sans' italic, there's some good points about making italics.

• Round shapes like /O or /e if just skewed linearly will look smooched on some parts of their curve profile, and flat on other parts of the curve.

Doing a transformation of 50% of the italic slant as skew, 50% of the italic slant as rotation, and them optical corrections gives a much better result.
