I don't think that the `skewchar trickery' should be extended
too far, since it eats up valuable slots in the fonts and is basically
just a hack to circumvent limitations of the tfm format (ie the inability
to associate more shape information to the glyphs, like eg accent skew,
underaccent skew, right (and possibly left) sub- and superscript
There is only one thing for which we experiment with extended skewchar
trickery: underaccent skew. It seems natural to use the `free side'
of the skewchar to encode this information in kerning pairs.
If more shape information has to be associated with glyphs, we
should think about a redesign of the tfm format. It would be good if
this could be coordinated with omegas ofm extensions.
