I haven't finished yet ... There were a few tries before, but obviously 
only a few folks do that. Usually the fonts that come with teTeX are 
sufficient. And those who want extras only need to follow an easy 
recipe, as Gary did.) (There are some complications with naming the 
fonts according to their encoding, shape/variant, so there can't be an 
algorithm. Without it software is no solution.)

(My own installer is aiming to convert TrueType fonts to PostScript 
fonts and make them via fontinst available to non-pdfTeX too. It's 
command line, but a GUI to the Perl script to fill in new fonts and 
name would be nice. And next summer/autumn the same for OpenType?)
