[tex-k] Plans about supporting TrueType/Type42 fonts in dvips?

Hi all,

are there any plans to enable dvips to include TrueType fonts in a
Postscript file, by wrapping them up as Type42 fonts?  We had this
request as a Debian bug report (http://bugs.debian.org/250216).  It
seems there are solutions only with external programs that create the
type42 fonts, and those solutions aren't well integrated.

Thanks for considering,
