[Fontinst] A macro to test TS1 glyphs in nfssfont.tex

Could it be a good idea to add a test macro to nfssfont.tex to check 
the use of glyphs from the TextCompanion encoding?

nfssfont.tex is the only (?) choice to see in table form the contents 
of a TeX font. Some macros are there that set normal ASCII text, some 
use funny diacritic characters, and \names substitutes in first names 
the ASCII characters by 'extended' look-alikes. Since the names are 
still recognized you can see whether the font's definitions to create 
these glyphs really work well. What's missing is a macro that uses the 
Old Style digits, fractions, currencies etc.

Would it make sense to add such a test macro? What could it look like?
