I missed this reply earlier and saw it just now on the list archive online.

Brilliant! It's a bit easier to parse the output of otfinfo is than the complete info from "main" because of the options otfinfo has.
Just tried it (for once building from source was easy as 1-2-3) and it showed me the correct info from the fonts, love it!
