   OTOH, if you really want line drawing fonts, using the DejaVu Mono src
   to generate a type1 font would be trivial.  FF has support to narrow
   the glyphs in a reasonable manner to match each version of cmtt.

   (cmtt8 is 531/1000, cmtt9 and cmtt10 are 525/1000 and cmtt12 is
   514/1000.  dejavu mono, to match courier's 600/1000, is 1233/2048.)

The word "trivial" is tantalizing, but i have no experience whatsoever.
I suppose "FF" stands for "Font Forge".  Is that right?  Any suggestions
for a font newbie to ramp-up on these terms / algorithms very welcome.
