it seems like all fonts provided with the X11 distribution
has a Python-like copyright.  this means that we should
be able to provide a precompiled set of fonts along with
a future version of PIL.  to be on the safe side, the pilfont
utility (and possibly the format) should be modified to
keep the copyright string around.

if anyone feels inspired, a contribution along these lines
would be highly appreciated.  or maybe someone could
send me some round tuits?
