I have a few hundred PS fonts I wanted to use with X.  While R6 will
work with them, you have to create a fonts.scale file, with the X11
name of each font.  So I wrote up a very ugly shellscript which
attempts to guess a good name for each font, after grepping for the
name, weight, and a few guesses for italics and other attributes.
