I haven't redone my analysis from
<URL:http://tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2006-June/010431.html> on this
for v1.00, but no one has questioned these statements even though they
knew that v1.00 existed at that time. So I don't expect a lot of changes
wrt to this an stand by my conclusions from there:

| The problems shown above are less severe than those shown for the
| EC->LM replacement. But the potential gain is also smaller, since bsr,
| cs, pl, and vnr fonts together bring in less than 10M of PFB files. And
| at least for bsr, only a part can be replaced by LM.
