Which constraints to the type of font resources does this mechanism sets ?
For instance, can it install and retrieve a random PS program,
which defines a Type 3 font ?
Then, if we install a type 3 font to a global font folder,
can regular applications work correctly ?
Can they work correctly using this font ?
Doubtly the answers are yes, yes. Therefore both Mac OS font machinery and
FONTPATH mechanism should collaborate.
