Many thanks for the prompt reply, Staszek, but
to say "it follows CTAN convention" is rather
bending the truth, isn't it ?  These fonts
are to be found on CTAN at


with a triple tautology for "fonts" (fonts/.../cbfonts/fonts/...)
and a double one for "greek" (.../greek/.../cbgreek/).  Thank God
TL-2008 doesn't /quite/ follow CTAN's lunacy here !
