I've just committed an improved version of the review script.
There are still things which can be improved but this allow our team -
and other maintainers as well as the wider open font community - to get
more info on the various fonts and to tackle the bugs.

I've not pushed the new script to Alioth yet. I won't have time over the
next few days so if Paul or anyone else can take care of that, it would
be very useful.

Any comments, ideas, or fixes to the review welcome!
