Virtual fonts is indeed an elegant solution to the problem.
But using fontinst for indic languages can be a pain

with fontinst went horribly wrong. Also I'm not an expert
on vf creation.

I have a backup of the akruti fonts somewhere on my system.
I'll generate the type1 versions as time permits ( may take
at least a week).
