This turned out to be even easier than I thought.  In the end,
we /did/ do a good job on the font selection scheme, so it seems.


However, this [from your]

    Generating the font files

    To generate the full Gonville font in a Lilypond-ready form, run

      ./ -lily

    This takes about half an hour on my 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo,

is a bit problematic.  We do not want to ship font binaries, but
I suppose we also do not want to add half an hour build time.

I guess you feel the same: it would really be nice if you found
a way to reduce the font build time :-)
