#206 added the Newfon driver to NVDA. The decision was controversial even back then, as Newfon itself can't be bundled with NVDA even if we wanted to. Newfon requires users to install files into the NVDA program directory, which we have always advised against.
Now that the add-on framework exists, I think it makes far more sense for Newfon to be an add-on. Among other things, this will make it very easy to install.
