The different versions containing cyrillic glyphs by Valek (who, BTW,
has always labeled his fonts as pre-releases) also introduced quite a
few bugs. See GS's bugzilla. All the additional glyphs in these fonts
are useless for GS's use of using them as substitute for the original
LW35 fonts from Adobe. The version on CTAN has the advantage that it is
the original version from URW (ie exactly what GS used to ship, a known
good state) with one bug fixed ('ß' in Nimbus Sans).
