Can we have a sync version while using as node module? #5

Do you really really need it? asciify loads a file off disk to get the font, so making that sync would tie up the event loop while the disk IO occurred. It's usually a bad idea to force node to do things sync style, so I'm keen to avoid endorsing that, and instead keep this module as simple as possible.


The ask is for a sync version along with async and the reason is that my program exists without display the ascii text if there is an error or something similar. I am aware that I can do it in a callback but just thought that it would be nice to have a sync version like we have in the core node library for reading file? I am fine if it's going against the design.
