Sorry for the late response.  I had an accident and spent a week in
hospital.  Just arrived at home a few hours ago.

When getnonfreefonts was born, it supported only the few fonts Karl had
to remove at this time, plus Adobe Euro.  When people became aware of
getnonfreefonts I was pointed to some other fonts which are supported
now, too.  The list of supported fonts is quite stable since then.

Actually, nowadays getfont200{6,7,8,9} is one and the same file with
different directory entries.  (Thanks to Harald König, who recently
told me that getfont2009 works fine with TL-2007).

During the last few years Karl had to remove a few other fonts from
TeX Live and informed me by mail.  Unfortunately I had no time to add
them immediately and now I don't find Karl's mails anymore.  However,
I'll add these fonts former or later.  My idea is to create a list of
fonts provided by TL-2005 and compare it with what we have now.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
