you can do anything, using any of the encodings, if you know what you
are doing. there are many ways to skin a cat. its very hard to advise
which is best, because the answer is usually "whatever works for
you". it also depends on whether this work is for you, on your
platform, full stop; or whether you plan to share it with others, and
work with different drivers etc etc.

you don't have to rename fonts if you use fontinst directly.
