What do you mean by FontTools v2.5? Are you talking about the master
branch of Google's fork of FontTools? Which ever version of FontTools
you mean, feel free to take over the Debian fonttools package and move
it into the team. My motivation for working on fonttools is low.

We will definitely need to package the other ones, using embedded code
copies definitely isn't acceptable for Debian.

Thanks. The Adobe people are quite responsive, I'm sure they will be
happy for the contributions.
