Just a follow-up:

If you use type1ec.sty, it's a non-trivial operation for Joe User to
actually avoid that only the g*1000 fonts are used.  With other words,
users who want to process T1 encoding with cm-super PS fonts from
TeXLive together with Greek normally do this

  \usepackage[greek, USenglish]{babel}

and will never need more than the mentioned 22 cbgreek fonts.
