and that was the beginning of my non using \latinfamily... 

In fact, you could do it in fontinst (a nice exercise to see if your
documentation is effective!): you should define a \fake_shape_c  that
converts names of the c8a font to adobe conventions (a -> Asmall),
etc, and use them...

I've found much more convenient to rename c8a.afm files (c7d indeed
(with OsF)) to 8x.afm with a sed script that changes the glyph names
accordingly, then to install the font as expert.
