Indeed.  To create standalone graphics it would even make sense to
insert the font.  PFA files can be inserted directly and PFB files
have to be piped through t1ascii.

This will lead to larger files, escpecially because no subsetting is
done.  But this way more fonts are available than only the LW35 fonts
and the file is portable.
