I'm familar with LM and the various other Type1 versions of CM.

Several reasons:
(1) CM is too "thin", so it's not very well suited to low-resolution devices
like computer screens. The Cambria font is much better in this respect, but I like the CM design better. I'd just like to adjust the parameters and make it a bit "fatter".
(2) I'm generally interested in parametric design techniques, and CM is an
excellent example.
(3) I think the geometry problems are interesting -- converting brush strokes to outlines and resolving the overlaps.
(4) I think it would be fun to have a GUI that lets you play with the design parameters
and immediately see the changes in the letter shapes.
Makes sense ??
