My apologies for not being more explicit.  *In light of the on-going
naming scheme change*, I would appreciate some guidance on what to
call binary fonts of varying formats derived from the same (source)

Having binary packages all called f-[f-]name but with different
contents (for example, TTF, vs. PSF) doesn't work.  I would appreciate
some guidance, or suggestions on how to disambigute these.  For
example the inclusion of 'psf-' or 'console-' as a prefix, or postfix.
