That is exactly the reason why I asked for real life experience. As you
wrote, scribus will winnow out crummy fonts. Maybe this can be sripted
somehow: first convert TeX fonts to Type1, then check with scribus? Just

With respect to Type 1/TTF/OTF your statement is true, but the supply of
TeX fonts is quite rich. In case they could be converted into *reliable*
Type 1 fonts, we had a huge repository of excellent fonts, including a
huge amount of glyphs per font.
