You know, this is starting to spin out of control. This started out 
as simply taking the Apple fonts out of the image, and now we're 
talking about replacing the entire character system.

I think we need to make sure the original objective isn't lost --
we need to get the Apple fonts out of the image. All this other 
stuff would be nice, but its not neccessary, and shouldn't be connected 
in my opinion.

Remember, small steps, simple increments, etc...
