Nice idea. I would like to patch the theme indeed, but that is a complicated
task because to rebuild the CSS from SASS, I would need some 3rdparty
dependencies packaged first (notably bourbon and wyrm).

If you think all .ttf users should just migrate to .otf, feel free to close
this bug.

Anyway, I would like #780233 to be fixed because I would need the bold
version of this font.
