[tex-live] compressing .afm files

    What software uses AFM files at runtime these days? 

I don't remember anything (in core texmf) ever using afm files at
runtime.  Just afm2tfm and fontinst?

    Can I compress them all as a matter of principle?

If you can compress them, can you compress the source files
(individually) too :)?  Seems like this is the single easiest way to
reclaim a lot of space.
