But people like me who are incapable of drawing using a mouse (or a
graphics tablet) and yet retain uniform strokes and such, but want to
produce a good font, and don't have the money to hire a professional
graphics artist, need some tool to produce outlines from mathematical
formulae (which we have the intellectual capability to work on).

What would be ideal for MF to produce outlines directly. In the
absence of that, there must be a seamless pipeline to produce them
from MF. I think as per suggestions of others that MF2PT1 can help.
I'm now looking into it.

Wish me luck, even if you yourself won't do it! :-) [I think same
would be said to bungee jumpers and such!]
