that for users who choose to load three different sizes of cmex for each
base size, the `large' versions of the operators in the scriptstyle
and scriptscriptstyle fonts will be wasted font positions, as Justin
pointed out. But this seems like a smaller price to pay than the

I would not like people to think that I was suggesting to change tex !
