The Adobe-owned font managers that handle CFF embedding were not donated, so
a pure Apache release cannot embed CFF fonts.  You can use an Adobe Flex
release to create font swfs and embed fonts from the SWFs, or you can use
the tool that Om has been working on to take the Apache kit and copy in the
Adobe font managers and embed CFF fonts directly.
