anybody up on the AFP font format?

I'm looking for someone to convert a Type 1 font to IBM's proprietary AFP format for use on a mainframe printer (IOW, variable data). the catalog of fonts in AFP format is surprisingly limited (as far as our rep has informed me). fortunately, I was able to uncover enough info about AFP to learn that Type 1 can be repackaged in such a way that it will work on this platform.

as always, our timeline is virtually non-existant, so any info would be much appreciated.

Look here. This appears to be exactly what you're looking for, but I'm not sure about licensing issues.
