Really? I had the impression they wanted to use pf2mt1 to translate the
Type 1 fonts to metatype1 format and then work from that. But I might
have got that wrong.

Recreating all the glyphs in metatype1 without using the existing glyphs
sounds like an awfull lot of work. Whether or not that is legally and
morally ok is a different question.
