Ok good to know. I think I'll check out GPLv3 anyhow.

seems using the current feta font isn't a big deal

Well, only if anyone decides to make an issue of this, and it's not
like we claim any sort of rights over images of the font when we put
them on paper or screen. I think you can just go ahead with muse2.

I'd recommend using freetype for the rendering instead btw, as you'll
be more flexible wrt symbol sizes on screens of different device
