In addition cm-super provides Type1 versions of cmbright and concrete
fonts, which could be interesting. Things like Dunhill or the SliTeX
fonts are not that interesting IMO.
As for different design sizes, I would only install the 10pt versions
(*1000.pfb and *10.pfb). Unfortunately there seems to be no application
that can make proper use of different design sizes.
