what do you think of the following new definition of the
\glyph_parameter command:

       #1\csname g-#2\expandafter\endcsname
       #1\csname g-#2-not\expandafter\endcsname
% error: glyph not set

That will allow this command to find the glyph parameters even if the
glyph is not encoded. That will make it possible to use commands such
as \height{...} to extract glyph metrics for unencoded glyphs too. in
the current definition, such attempts will lead to errors.
