- It would be reasonable to let the idvi application search for
fonts using the ls-lR mechanism. This would be implemented as
an extension to the static functions of idvi.font.DVIFont.
- The display applet cannot afford to download a huge ls-lR file
before attempting to load fonts. So it remains a good idea
to maintain a flat directory of font files on the web server.
Searching could be enabled through a flag maintained by idvi.IDVI,
with the applet disabling searching and the application enabling it.
- The copyfont mechanism could be updated, so that only those font
files which are needed by a page are copied to the flat directory
structure on the server. The copyfont script would have to be able
to search for the font.
