Take a look at Donald E. Knuth's work on METAFONT and Computer
Modern---``it's in there''
One person at TUG 2001 (Nelson Beebe, I think it was), characterized
Multiple Master fonts as ``baby METAFONT''. Unfortunately, it's not even
that good, since one is stuck with creating nothing but outlines with
(who is thinking his decision to go forward a couple of years back with
an outline editor instead of pausing to learn METAFONT first was wrong)
