OK, I've made some minor tweaks to Miriam's great script to get more
font metadata to show (via ftinfo -n) and have added it to the svn (it's
currently called debfontreview) along with a few other font-related scripts.

Until your newer script is ready IMHO the bash script you made is
already incredibly useful. I really agree with Christian and Paul that
we need to take time to put in on the webspace of the Alioth project
with a nice little crontab.

Regular font review across the entire archive can be a good subject for
discussion during the Font BoF on Sunday afternoon:

See you soon,
