Hi Branden,

I will be releasing change to the error message when a download font is 
unavailable. Two versions, one for a non-existent file and one for not 
readable, along the lines you suggested. These will also trigger a non-zero 
exit code when run is complete.

The freeeuro issue, I believe you are looking at this with regard to a change 

I think the only other thing I am waiting for are your thoughts on 
resurrecting BuildFoundries as a standalone program, with suitable 
documentation, that this should be the first port of call if you receive 
errors from entries in the download file.
