Importantly the font also has a glyph called uni20AC. Otherwise
it wouldn't work properly in a Unicode environment like Windows NT,
where the Euro has the old Unicode 1.1 position 20A0. While the
font shares a subroutine for all these glyphs, its not clear why they
bothered with different names. There most be some brain-dead
software that gets confused by encoding vectors with repeated
entries. In any case, the font files would be a lot smaller without
these extraneous names...
