I'll point out because it might not be obvious that the work done on  
the accufonts ensures that
characters map correctly to display/keyboard exceptions (unlike) the  
original fonts. In fact
for some keyboards using the old fonts it's impossible to display the  
right accented character.

Using the "current font solution of the day" isn't only a licensing  
issue, it's also an issue of character/keyboard
coverage too.
