its worse than than that. some investigations by Wayne Sullivan into
my metrics reveal that all of tftopl, pltotf, vptovf, and vftovp need
capacities enlarging, and that vftovp has a genuine bug which fontinst
kicks with the compoundwordmark. thats why latin.mtx needs an empty
content for that glyph.
