Also, I only consider a type 1 font okay when it has both an afm and a pfb
file and mkiv can handle that quite well (even beyond the regular tex

to buy again.

Same here, but I found it easier to convert my fonts to OpenType by
loading them into fontforge and doing Save As...

I still have a mystery regarding the type 1 fonts installed with
GhostScript, though:

\definetypeface [dingbats][ss][sans][dingbats][default]

this assumes a dingbats typescript

{\dingbats \uchar{39}{7}\uchar{39}{13}\uchar{39}{42}}
