But output encoding can be changed by a bunch of "special"s with necessary 
postscript code (easy modification of a font encoding file, say from 
fontname). It works only for 8-bit and may be not so useful with 
upcoming metapost, where you may find a TeX font with necessary encoding.

        Sincerely, Michail
