When working on MathPi, I found that it was better to first edit the
AFM file to give proper names to the glyhs than hacking once
more the fontinst-encoding...
However, is there any standard for the glyph names that will end up in
M* encodings? I'm not even sure that the various type 1 versions of
CM, lucida or symbol agree. Does the unicode glyph registry help?
Where do the fontinst names for OM* encodings?
