it was not lost: as i said, i extracted only the fontforge-generated
BlueValues and OtherBlues values, and inserted them into the original
fonts using t1disasm+perl+t1asm.

the fonts were already hinted with fontlab, and i don't want to risk
breaking them by rehinting again. at least not this time, as i don't
have time to devote to testing the fonts. when i'll have more time, i'll
regenerate cm-super fonts from scratch again.
