Yes, as many as I can legally include.

Not that I'm aware of. I think the problem -- for the CM/PS fonts
at least -- is that the bitmap info is being used by the OS X font
renderer at actual size and smaller.  Maybe the problem could be solved
by removing the bitmap info from the fonts (so only the outline info
is available), but I don't know how to do that (is Tom Kacvinsky on
this list?).

But I'm no expert on Mac fonts so take the above with a grain of salt.
Maybe some of the font gurus on this list would know more.
