Karl changing at tl would be better than nothing, better would be to
update mathtext.dtx at ctan.
I'd be happy to do that if ctan would allow me just to upload
mathtext.{dtx,ins} into
I don't have the resources (or cyrillic understanding) to take over
(or even build) the whole t2 collection but I could fairly reliably
update mathtext.dtx.
