The problem is that I'm trying to write a recipe that will work for 
version 1.8 and \reglyphfont is in the prerelease branch only. So I 
guess this means that there is no way of getting a SC & OSF set right 
with 1.8 short of renaming each and every glyph individually and 
adjusting the kerning tables?

Let me check if I understand how \reglyphfont would be employed in 
this case, though. Instead of:


I'd go like this:

  \input csc2x


Is this correct? What's the difference between csc2x.tex and 
csckrn2x.tex anyway? 

But actually, the mechanism used under the hood still involves 
renaming each and every glyph, right? The difference is that 
csc2x.tex will do that for me and the \reglyphfonts supports 'batch' 
jobs, so to speak.
