I'm here to ask some advice on the possible renaming of msttcorefonts.
This has been requested a couple of years ago, before I adopted the
package: #286154.

(Hopefully, the recent addition of ttf-liberation will reduce demand on
this package, which is a kludge anyway... but back on topic)

The request is to rename to something like ttf-mscorefonts. I'm not
adverse to this idea but would like your input on whether this is a useful
or even good idea, and what would be the best name. The package doesn't
contain real fonts but is an installer for ttf fonts, if that matters.

I'll probably keep Providing msttcorefonts as this name is used in many
help documents etc.
