[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#665334: Adobe font hinting

I see that this set of PS code that needs to be OepnSource includes all
the OtherSubrs, not just the MM OtherSubrs.

Same answer as for the OtherSubrs MM code: Sounds like a good idea to make
this OpenSource. It is not a lot of work, but the Type Dept is low on
legal resources. I will take this up within the Adobe Type Dept, and see
if we can get this done before the AFDKO goes OpenSource, which is at
least a year away.
