Ah, ooops, my mistake.

The more we go, the more this package renamingn business becomes
complicated (OK, I complicated it by moving the files, but I wasn't
actually expecting that some packages would hardcode the font paths).

Do you think it is needed for liberation or was mokomaze the only
affected package?

(I'm not really in position to check all this right now as the
connection here in India is.......sometimes difficult..:-))
