Yes, this would be wonderful. I spent last weekend importing a single Adobe font into teTeX; now I need a truetype font and after trying the various on-line instructions I have no idea how to go about it. In the attempt to do so on my office computer, I ended up hurting something in the teTeX installation and had to re-install. It's definitely not a friendly process.
