Probably not hard, if you use the existing support styles for Lucida  

But who is Ascender Corporation?
How much did you pay for the fonts?

I thought TUG has the distribution rights now, though maybe not

Any redistribution should be subject to strict licensing terms,
at least in regard to what else is supplied along with the fonts

Karl, can you please clarify what are the (re)distribution rights?
