Is there any chance to change this in the near future, so
that OTF fonts could be included partially, too?

Or are there difficult technicel reasons why that's not possible?

If it /could/ be done, but is a matter of available people who
have time to do it, I might be able to contribute as a
programmer, if that helps?
