Not at all. I just do not see that we get much by repackaging
them. I would much rather see *new* effort put into put into
something that supports printing and higher resolution
screens. In a few years we are likely to have a reasonable
selection of outline fonts in the open source market and I
can easily see developers writing code to detect and not use
these old fonts since they cannot be printed.
