No. The i-Package is 70MB in size because it has those fonts (or at 
least all that are in TeX Live). But the Levy fonts look like a couple 
of metafont sources which would then result in pk fonts, not type1.

So, afaik, the CB-Greek i-Package is complete. The lgreek stuff is 
older and metafont only. But correct me if I'm wrong. I have removed 
the lgreek latex stuff in the meantime.
