Yeah, but it seems that before (XF86 3), either:

  The file was called "libType1.a"
  The XF86 conf file was dropping case

In other words, "Load "Type1"" worked before I upgraded. :)

(It was also what people/documentation said to put in the conf. file.
In fact, the reason I found out that this was suddenly case-sensitive
was because of a follow-up to an answer to someone's question about not
being able to load Type1 fonts anymore.  They had to point out that
the "t" had to be lowercase.)
