I'd personally prefer to spend the money (or a bit more) on a
competition/bounty to develop a free version of the font with the
minimum characters needed; say the latin alphabet plus a a few bits of
punctuation. Places that could be used to host such a competition are:


I would favor having a free version of the font created, provided that it could be done reasonably expediently.   It WOULD be really handy to have easy access to the font for creating augmented logos.  I think if people had easy access to the font that they would be inclined to use it to create logos for their group (Debian Games, Debian Edu, Debian Art, heck even Debian Publicity)
