i wonder, should fontinst correct kerning values of fonts when it
transforms one font to another by slanting (with positive or negative
angle)? for example, let's imagine that one takes a font cmti10 and
transforms it to cmu10 using slanting with angle -0.250. Should one
get kerning in the generated cmu10 identical to the kerning in the
standard cmu10? it seems that kerning values should be modified
accordingly (based on the designsize and slanting angle).
