Re: Intergrals again

We shouldn't mix the Euler symbols with CM symbols, they're very
different in weight and shape.

Agreed.  The choice of integral style is part of the font
implementation, similar to the other glyph shape decisions.

This doesn't necessarily need to be part of an alternative, since (in
cmex) if you say:

   \def\fatrbrace{\delimiter"5000338 }

then you'll get a right brace that's always built from the extensible

I'd say yes, every large operator should have a small variant.
