the fonts appear on ctan as language/polish/pl-mf .../pl-tfm and
../plpsfont, i.e., confused in the same way as cc-pl was until recently

the catalogue entries are similarly confusing, being pl-mf and plpsfont;
pl-tfm is obviously a waste of space in today's world and i've not
catalogued it.

perhaps we can persuade one of the poles to rationalise this lot too?
