The code that requires AFM files for Type1 fonts have been there since
2001 with the introduction of PostSctipt printing in OpenOffice, so I
fail to see how it would have worked differently in the bast.

(I don’t really think we need the info contained in the AFM files,
though, but someone has to trace the code to verify this.)
