I've done a bit of work on P9P's fontsrv as well as a version -
somewhat mysteriously different - "ported" to Plan 9. If we can debate
the pros and cons of effectively replacing the static availability of
fonts in Plan 9 with a networked TrueType font server (as I am largely
using presently, to some extent), I believe some work could be
dedicated in turning fontsrv into an integral part of the Plan 9
distributions.

I'll be happy to assist with mentorship in this. I'd no doubt learn
much myself in the process.

Lucio.
