Using fonts from the LaTeX Font Catalogue.

Thank you for your considered response, Boris.  I do not seek for one 
second to suggest that to use fonts /properly/ (and /advisedly/) is 
trivial.  But that was not my point.  My point was solely that it should 
be /trivial/ to /use /any font listed in the LaTeX font catalogue — it 
should not require package f for font F, package f' for font F' and so 
on.  There should be a single simple uniform interface that conceals 
from the user all of the complexities that arise from having to support 
multiple fonts in multiple formats, in multiple sizes and variants, and 
so on.  All this, of course, for the LaTeX user — a plain TeX hacker 
such as myself cannot and should not expect any such spoon feeding :  he 
(or she) is on their own.
