That is your best shot IMHO. Just make sure you have it done
professionally, so that you get the vector modified elegantly... but
also the hinting. Good hinting will make it render to clear/legible
glyphs on screen.

Hinting is gonna be hard & possibly costly. It is the price you pay
for having a font that handles print and screen correctly.
