They were not foreseen by Tom > Rokicki. Perhaps Berthold wants to learn us why we need them "uberhaupt? Fontinst supports them, but only by brute force truncation after the decimal point. They were introduced by Adobe at the same time as MM fonts, and I suspect that that's not a coincidence! MM AFMs are generated by interpolating, so it's not surprising you need non-integer AFM values. Alan.
