I am in process of writing such a tool, influenced mostly by Bitstream
Font Navigator.   It uses a Single Font or Font Collection
install/uninstall methodology and I plan on lib'ing it so it could be
possible for other applications to do the appropriate font

At this stage it's still all commandline tools and really ugly code from
someone self-taught on the cusp of K&R and the first ISO C. :)
