There's a full set of metrics from Norm Walsh called ljmetrics, though.
For dvilj to use the built-in fonts, the header information in the
TFM file has to be set up the way it's set up in those files. I can
elucidate if it becomes an issue.

I have the PTF CD from 1994, but hpfonts.sty doesn't seem to be on there,

I've done a bit with graphics support -- fixed vertical positioning for
psfile and implemented pdf:image, which supports ps, pdf, png, jpg, and
netpnm formats using filters based on the netpbm suite of tools. I can
also define a graphic as a laserjet macro, so I can load it once. and
put it on the page repeatedly. I think scaling of pdf images doesn't
work properly right now, and the use of filters introduces an exploit
which I'd like to fix before moving the code off this machine. I also
made some of the cosmetic changes I mentioned before. I plan to make
a release before the end of spring (but reserve the right to pick
which hemisphere).
