I wonder is there is still a high interest in those bitmapped fonts. 
Most installs pobably come because some tasksel tasks trigger these
packages to be installed.

Of course, at minimum, we could adopt the package but not enter big
complicated changes in it (probably renamedit, at least to make ti fit
the new packaging "still has to be published policy"q). Other team members, opinion?
