I have installed them (with TeXShop/teTeX) and used them for some months 
now, they look fine. I am using them everytime I need French hyphenation 
and thus require T1 encoding.

On the other hand I did not manage to access the Cyrillic part of the 
fonts. The Cyrillic scripts are supposed to be there somewhere in 
cm-super fonts, and there are map files telling pdfTeX or dvips to 
replace LaTeX's default Cyrillic fonts by cm-super fonts. However it 
just didn't work for me, I wanted to include Cyrillic words (paper title 
and author name) in a straightforward French letter and couldn't.
