Initial review:

1. MUST: rename the package to chisholm-xxx to be consistent with "to be
continued" font

2. MUST: register the font as fantasy, really, this is not a general-purpose
font at all (also please use the same casing as the font files use, I don't
know if fontconfig is case sensitive or not best avoid problems)

3. MUST: there is no clear version in the font files, so use the timestamp of
the most recent file as version (19970902)

4. SHOULD: ask upstream to add a detached .txt licensing file to its zip (the
font itself says "all rights reserved", and if the web site ever disappears we
won't have any licensing grant trace anywhere)

5. SHOULD: ask usptream to use different family names for the three fonts and
not invent weird styles like "at their Execution". They'll drive normal
software like OpenOffice mad (yes I know this would make it a multifont package
which is a bit harder to create but this is the right thing to do)
