* acroread should stay because it's still the reference rendering software 
for .pdf.  Although I am very satisfied with KPDF that's the default 
application which opens .pdf

* agfa-fonts have equal metric to MS fonts, if I have the information 
correctly, so they're needed.  Note that Red Hat released a set of GPL fonts 
with equivalent metric to MS.  They're called the liberation fonts

As a general rule, the more prepackaged software, the better.  If SUSE doesn't 
have resources to package some of the not-so-widely-used proprietary 
software, how about the respective vendors start doing that themselves using 
the nice SUSE build service?
