	Right - the original / authoritative version should be the .sdf file
which (IIRC) as well as being 'diff -u' able - so we can see what
changed, is/was also more descriptive & complete :-)

	Great - that's the right approach.

	So - IMHO it should be the other way around ;-) at least, when I last
edited that font; if we've fluffed that up I suggest we load the
original sfd, copy in the new glyphs from the TTF, save it as sfd, and
re-export as ttf ;-)

	Of course - it'd be nice to do that compilation to TTF during the
build, but ... it's not so easy without fontforge installed.
