You know, licensing commercial data rather than producing a libre
version of it seems to be quite at odds with the Debian way of things.

I certainly like the Debian logo, so I don't mind the typeface as such,
but I think we should at least use a free version of it.  If there's
none, we should either use some Debian funds to commission someone to
make it (if there's a willing and talented typograph to be found) or
change to a different typeface.
