I wonder what people feel about breaking the "cm" package in two, so
that the Metafont sources are a separate package (which I can omit)?
would that cause howls of protest?
I see no harm in it.
or shall I not have "cm" at all, and just have "lmodern"?
You still have to have cm, or basically no existing documents will be
processable. LM is not a drop-in replacement for CM. It doesn't
have a cmr10.tfm, for instance, and anyway the metrics are slightly
different (and better).
Realistically, are .afm files ever used these days by normal users?
I mean the .afm files for cm, lmodern etc
I can't imagine why. I don't ever use them, at least.
