Nooo, please nooooo !!!

This leads towards unportable PS and PDF. For what ?? 0.7 second less time
for the first sheet of paper ?

Please. Not this. Let's stick to the portable set of fonts only (high-end
printers or software rasterisers will some sort of caching anyway).

Translators have no business knowing about font names; we have to do this
for the moment, but it's an ugly kludge.
