This the archive is inded very big, and takes some probably unzips in some more MBytes, thereby taking more that 10% of the tex live cd! 

Maybe it makese sense to determine a suitable subset (like the list that GB used to define the cbgreek typescript); also, i wonder if scaling really affects the quality. Are these real type 1's or converted bitmaps? 

Since you're the user who wants greek most, can you make such a list? 

  \showfont[fontname] can be of help ... 

Maybe tex live can benefit from it. 


PS. Karl: interesting to keep an eye on in the perspective of keeping tex live within reasonable size.
