An update:  Adobe is still investigating what it would take to make a set of
JARs available to Apache.

The fontswf utility is only available in the full Adobe Flex SDK.  Someone
would have to have an Adobe license then could create SWFs with fonts in
them that can be embedded into Apache Flex SWFs.

I've been told that DefineFont4 is really just a blog of CFF data, so any
utility that can convert other fonts to CFF has a chance of working.
