[Fontinst] Kerning information from AFM files

I am not completely sure about it, but it would sound strange to me if 
Fontinst wouldn't use the KPX lines in AFM files ...

What happens when the glyph names used in these lines are not 
understood because they are not those Fontinst expects? They're 
probably neglected too as the glyphs' data. What happens when a helpful 
MTX files translates:

\ifisglyph{afii08941}\then	\setglyph{lira} \glyph{afii08941}{1000} 
\endsetglyph \Fi

Would this translation hold into the KernData section of an AFM file, 
i.e. would Fontinst use this information?



$ sumascii BILL GATES
   B   I   L   L   G   A   T   E   S
  66+ 73+ 76+ 76+ 71+ 65+ 84+ 69+ 83 = 663

  and add 3 because he's Bill Gates the third.
