The problem with the evolution of lucida's TeX integration over the
years is that old documents (e.g. from 1996) will either not work
anymore or silently(!) produce different results now (if they use
OT1). Neither is acceptable. I understand the desire to introduce new
features, but not breaking old documents should be a priority.
