Hhhmm, this doesn't include the FontForge source so uploading it would
probably be a DFSG violation.

It would also be great if the Google folks could forward their changes
upstream instead of forking it.

VFB format is from the proprietary FontLab tool. Is there a tool in
Debian main to build the TTF/OTF files from that? If not we would have
to move fonts-inconsolata to contrib.
