I'm skeptical about that. Anything that goes beyond the basic
I think including your metrics for all the PS fonts is a great idea.
But I also think the way to organize it is according to what fonts users
actually have, i.e., the installation options are:
1) freefonts + 35
2) bitstream 500 font cd
3) monotype cd
4) y&y lucida
and whatever else. *Not* by selecting individual typefaces or vendors,
since everyone will have adobe/*/utopia, but few will have adobe/*/garamond.
If you *really* want to go overboard, we could construct a list of the
Type 1's supplied by the Unix vendors and have more options:
5) AIX Type 1's
6) SunOS Type 1's
If the installation script (assuming its existence) works off a database
that maps installation options to directories to install off the CD,
this would be easy.
