[Fontinst] Tokens in 6th argument of \DeclareFontShape

Hi all,

I can't find a way to insert code into the last argument of
\DeclareFontShape in a .fd-file directly from a fontinst driver file.

>From the manuals (fontinst.pdf & fntguide.pdf):

\installfont      {<font-name>} {<metrics-list>} {<etx-list>}
                  {<encoding>} {<family>} {<series>} {<shape>}

\DeclareFontShape {<encoding>} {<family>} {<series>} {<shape>}
                  {<loading-info>} {<loading-settings>}

Tokens inside \installfont...{<size>} will end up in
\DeclareFontShape...{<loading-info>}.  I want to have one token in
{<loading-settings>}, preferably without using `sed'.  Any hint, or am
I missing the obvious?

Best, Arash
