  I do not equate the features of Computer Modern with TeX itself, it is
you claiming I do that, but Computer Modern and TeX were originally
developed as a matching pair.

  I think Frank Mittelbach put up some interesting articles on what general
pragmatics one use.

  So do you think that the extra math fonts metric added in the Y&Y AFM
files for Lucida Math is sufficient for a good TeX or LaTeX font, I mean so
that people who normally just writes manuscripts could just flip it in?
