Is there a font format which makes use of single stroke paths?

What I mean is this:
To accomplish drawing a monoline font, are there any font file formats, existing or dead, that make use of a single open vector path shape to trace the spine of a glyph? I seem to recall this in the distant past, but maybe I'm mistaken.

Of course you're asking why? Someone asked me and I thought I'd get a definitive answer here.

thanks all,

Type-3 did, but it's dead.
Metafont does, but it's niche.
