Would someone please package the program Font Industry at

big charset font (like CJK font) creation.

It says:
  Font Industry

  Font Industry industrialize procedure of the big charset font
  production. It free the big charset font creation from artists' studio
  into the average John's basement. The font market will be flooded with
  huge amount of cheap, low quality, big charset, hand script font in no
  time. Be scared! Be very scared!

  What does Font Industry really do?

  The program converts a scanned in grid sheet containing a lot of
  glyphs into a bitmap font. The glyphs will be automatically indexed
  with unicode. That's it.

  The bitmap font format used is the fontforge .sfd.

  A scalable font (TTF, OpenType?) can then be generated using
  fontforge's autotrace function.

  A separated grid sheet template package is provided.
