   and its obscured the important questions (for me) which are
    a) do we want black boxen for missing characters in a font?
       or just TeX and dvips warnings
    b) are the kermings in 8r.mtx bad, as Thierry suggests


In own opinion a TFM file should not lie.  If there is no character
this should be what the TFM file says.

And TeX should announce the missing character *and* its context on
screen.  I know this goes against modifying TeX in any way, but surely
this is just useful informational stuff added on that does not affect
the TRIP test?  Naturally it would be a while before all TeX
implementations do this...
