Well, I attach a new one that trays to be smart, it'll process all files
passed to it in the command line and saves new files in a "new/" subdir,
and the previous version were actually failing on several fonts. So, now
"./ffi_ffl.py *.otf" is enough.

Lets hope that GUST will fix those fonts some day (and fix their
licensing issues so that we can actually get those fonts distributed
beyond TeX world)
