Let me reassure you, I am slowly working everything into /fonts/tfm
format. There is no resistance there. I don't like it even now, and
for whatever reason, it soaks up more inodes than the other way round.
fonts/tfm has won, but I have yet to detect the slightest improvement
in searching efficiency as a result. If ls-R is not up-to-date, I
get a lot of thrashing, and if it is, I get as near immediate
font selection as I could ask, given the breadth of my font library.
But publicly, the majority has spoken, and I follow the example of
Rene Levesque rather than Jacques Parizeau. I do not intend to drag
us into another root-canal session.
