This alone won't help much, if the original font is
reencoded to 8r encoding as usual (*), because this 
encoding has no slot named afii08941, so the character 
is not accessible at all.  You would also need to 
replace 8r.enc and 8r.etx with patched versions, which 
have afii08941 in place of Lira.

Whether or not this is in fact the right way to go, 
depends on the glyph repertoire of the fonts in question,
which I don't know.
