Are you sure you about that? Do the Truetype fonts have the same quality? I'm 
not an expert in typesetting, but I always thought, the TeX font system had 
superiour capabilities when it comes to the fine details. Can Truetype fonts 
capture all of that?

Of course, looking at the comfort of use, TrueType/Type1/OpenType (all handled 
by freetype) would be by far the best thing to do. (Even more, when looking 
at export features.)
