interesting. I didnt know about Icking's untimely death, thats sad.

the trouble is, all packages are used by *someone*,
so its hard to sort out. I am torn between the contrasting claims of

 * the CJK fonts. hard to deny a place for something with so many 
   potential users
 * cm-super. if its what you want, you want it badly, and better
   alternatives are not available yet
 * the myriad national variant fonts provded by cstug and gust.
   no doubt they have strong reasons for wanting them
really, is the decent small replacement for cm-super that
is needed.
