Googling for RAWIN-R explains some historic things.  The first two
links (in Russian and Engish) "explain" how it was created.  Then
there is the 5th link to some Athena file with aliases, which aliases
iso8859-5 to these fonts.  So probably this Athena file was imported
to other places at some moment.

Anybody: is there any *positive* effect of these aliases?  If I ever
find *how* to disable them (which I doubt :-[), would there be any
negative effect for the hundreds of other people on this site?
