Hello,

Well I have always plead for big packages to split up when

but nooo.. Pikachu knows everything. :-) (bnc#437141)

AFM are Adobe Font Metrics and TFM are TeX Font Metrics _for using_
Type1 fonts. The former are needed for PS and PDF output (AFAIR) and
the latter are needed by (pdf)TeX. And cm-super _are_ Postscript Type1
fonts and _not_ bitmap fonts. If they look bad, do you have the AFM
installed?

So, you'd need to package each fonts/type1 subtree with the
corresponding fonts/afm and fonts/tfm subtrees, along with the
matching Tex / LaTeX / dvips / ... map files, style files etc.

And BTW: cm/ec fonts are not optimized for the screen! They're
optimized for printing. Try printing such a "bad looking" pdf. And
compare that with a print using a optimized-for-screen font like
Verdana, esp. when using larger and smaller sizes, say 6 to 24 pt
sizes.

HTH,
