FYI, Andrew Greenberg once did a file-in for Computer Modern Fonts.

See  Bitmap fonts

Actually I see that we should generally move to a Unicode solution in

as indicate by Yoshiki.Ohshima at today in the  'm17n Squeak'. 

The short term fix for the license just should make it possible for
Squeak to get into the major Linux distributions. That counts. The other
issues can be sorted out later.
