Last thing I expected.

I was planning to writing a couple of quick and dirty scripts/programs 
to analyze
the contents of font files, and well.. looks like it's my lucky day. 
Especially since I
have access to the source and will be able to modify it should I needs 
arise that
are not covered.

I hope this great utility gets a lot of exposure and will tickle the 
fancy of the debian
developers so it becomes available via their repositories.

Thank you very much for taking the time to reply to my post.
