    Although I do not have the cvs build referred to in the message, I have
had some experience with this problem; so, allow me to weigh in.
I have worked with editors and sent Quark files to the image setter (in
Michigan!). When the print returns the author finds the page is not exactly
as the copy submission was. It flows differently. And they say "oh, you used
ttf Times not ps TimsRmn." or "you did not really have bold italics in
Collect for Output...."
The differences are very slight but authors are disconcerted  and sometimes
the absolutely exact placing is critical (to them at least).
No matter how "easy" it is to pick fonts (I do call for that) one must know
what is really available and be restrained from doing what it not going to
take effect.
