At fontmap level, dvips provides x-scaling.
VTeX, in contrast, implements y-scaling (beside
isotropical scaling, of course), and it has to
be performed at TeX Level:
\aliasfont mycmr = cmr10 aspect 900
This will emulate a variant of cmr10, with the
height scaled down to 90% of its regular value.
OTOH, x-scaling must be put together from
isotropical scaling and y-scaling:
\aliasfont xyatip11 = xyatip10 scaled 1100 aspect 909
whereas the dvips font map says
xyatip11 XYATIP10 "1.1 ExtendFont" <xyatip10.pfb
