I'm not sure of the license terms, as I wouldn't be the one selling
the fonts-- currently Arclight only uses Frutiger Light, though if I
find a really compelling reason I might add a second.  If I could do
what I wanted w/ free fonts, I would, but the quality just isn't
there.  As I get closer to releasing, I'll find a few options for
procuring the font and let people make their own choices.  I suspect
the licenses are "for personal use" rather than per-seat, so I think
you should be fine.

I hope people don't come away with the impression that choosing closed
fonts was a vindictive choice-- Frutiger was just the font that did
what I wanted to do, and did it most beautifully.

It's also worth noting that a *lot* of people already have a legally
obtained copy of Frutiger on a windows install.
