 Anyway, what I wanted to ask was: Is there any use for negative italic
 corrections, or should they be ignored? In v1.910 and before, negative
 italic corrections have been ignored when one is writing a ligful (V)PL,
 but not when one is writing a ligless PL, which is probably a bit
 inconsistent.

Although i can't imagine a real world situation where an oblique _
would be next to a roman char, i think that the negative IC would be
expected there, in order to prevent a hole.
