Yes, that's true. The advantage of using PostScript fonts is lost wenn 
every design size becomes its own font (programme).  Someone with the 
right programme should try to unite all the different sizes to one 
file. Good hinting should be able to establish the recent, maybe 
optimized, shapes.

I think too that cbgreek should become an extra i-Package for those 
that really need it.

On a different topic: during my installations I tried a few times to 
add local maps. This did not work because the mechanism to do so is not 
implemented yet. At least that's the comment in the log window. Gerben, 
are you still aware of this?
