FYI, Andrew Greenberg once did a file-in for Computer Modern Fonts.
See http://minnow.cc.gatech.edu/squeak/2135 Bitmap fonts
Actually I see that we should generally move to a Unicode solution in
as indicate by Yoshiki.Ohshima at acm.org 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.
