They're the licensor we're the "user" accepting the right to use the
artifact.  An
automated program can't legally "accept" a license.  An organization can ...

All I'm saying is that I don't think the STIX folks would appreciate us hacking
our way through their license acceptance form just to download the
fonts.  Someone
should download them from stixfonts.org, accepting their license, and make
them available for our purposes.

My question is where do I put them if I can't check them into subversion?
