No non-free fonts are going to be acceptable unless we contact the font
authors and come to an agreement on the license. But I think we should
cast a wide net, because in my experience most font authors are quite
happy to reconsider their licenses (actually I've talked to maybe 12 or
so and none of them have told me no!)
