I can see that renaming would work, but that
would prevent the .ttc font from working
in other applications that require and expect
a .ttc, but wouldn't symbolic linking cause
a problem in that it would then find /two/
fonts, one .ttc and one .ttf, the former of
which it would treat as type-1 and the latter
as truetype ?!
