ah... ok I confess I found this link


on an internet forum of mixed reputation.

Now that I think about it the cowfont was perhaps already
there in my TL install, or at least accessible but I think
I didn't even checked or tried.

(side-note: actually I had to uncompress the archive and re-do it
after having replaced "context" in repertory names
 with "hoekwater/koeieletters"
and hacked the cowfont.tlpobj file to reflect this, in an attempt
to make the archive fully TDS compliant)

Hence to sum up, my experience is limited to this unique occasion
so far ;-)

best wishes,
