It sounds like the mapping from latin_[weights|widths|shapes] to 
tex-[variant|weight] is still a moving target. Is there any written
documentation except the fontinst.sty? Maybe a proposal. I remember
having real problems to make fontinst to recognize each bitstream
font and fit in into the tex sheme.

They problem I ran into when a tried to install the bitstream font,
was that monospaced fonts like the above simply weren't found
when I called \latinfamily{familyname}{}\bye
though I added \latin_shape{t}{t}{}{tt} to \latin_shapes.
(At that time I used fontinst 1.6, 1.801 doesn't have the shape at all)
Anyway, I never needed that font.

Is it \setint{monospace} or \setint{monowidth}?
