And why you are doing that any way, why not loading zebrackets fonts
(whatever is that) directly?

Timestamps are calculated using lfs.attributes(file, "modification"),
but it should not cause regenerating otfl-names.lua (they are used to
avoid re-scanning font files unnecessarily).

otfl-names.lua gets (re)generated if no one exits or when asking for a
font that is not found in the database.
