OK.  With other words, \setnotglyph isn't needed if there is a single
input font, or more specific, it isn't needed if only a PL file is
built (as I actually do -- pdftex currently doesn't support the
`ToUnicode' feature for virtual fonts).

IMHO this is worth being mentioned in the manual.

Thanks for the explanation.
