tweak the build scripts to create a SWF with the font from sources.  It
isn’t a violation to have SWCs and SWFs in a repo, but I’d rather we
always ensure that we truly can build everything from sources.  It has the
advantage of picking up the latest and greatest from the upstream source
and not getting stale (assuming you can trust the upstream to be backward
