just looked to these many cbgreek fonts. Seems they are made from a
small group of sources, with slight adaptions to various design sizes.
But they share the same internal structures. See what happens if one
does a tar, tar c, tar j on the pfb's (cb.t*) and on versions
disassembled by t1disasm (cbasm.t*):

-rw-r--r--    1 hahe     hahe     64573440 11-07 12:07 cbasm.tar
-rw-r--r--    1 hahe     hahe      5561066 11-07 12:11 cbasm.tgj
-rw-r--r--    1 hahe     hahe      8888786 11-07 12:08 cbasm.tgz
-rw-r--r--    1 hahe     hahe     19240960 11-07 12:03 cb.tar
-rw-r--r--    1 hahe     hahe     17805859 11-07 12:12 cb.tgj
-rw-r--r--    1 hahe     hahe     18200123 11-07 12:04 cb.tgz

so maybe one could (not now) distribute them in disassembled/tgj form,
and run a script to re-create the pfb's?
