[Mac OS X TeX] Font Wish

Wish lists are all the rage at the moment, so here is another one.

A font installer with a simple Mac-like user interface, preferably drag 
and drop.

The installer would allow one to take a Mac (or PC) font folder and 
convert the contents to something that Gerben's teTex installation can 
find, creating the necessary files and putting them in the right places. 
So that all the user has to do is put /usepackage{blah} and it works. 
This is something I would pay for, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. At 
the moment fonts in TeX seem nightmarishly hard to change---unless it is 
something really simple (and ugly IMHO) like Times.

(Some adobe font stuff does get installed already, but apparently it's 
too difficult to say just what it is.)
