No, I don't. We have to ask Martin Vogel for it (and he will probably
answer the same: that he doesn't see any compelling reason to include
it). I only know how it has been generated from what pdfinfo reports.

Me neither. But I still find it more difficult to modify marvosym.ttf
than marvosym.pdf.

(I'm sorry. I think that "one can" (german: "man kann") is more
suitable in English that "you can"; I sometimes translate literally
from my own language by accident.)

Transformation to TeX can be left as an exercise to the reader ;)
If somebody does it, I will happily include it in marvodoc.pdf.
