[tex-k] note from Don Knuth

Dear TeX-Kers,

With the sources, it isn't a big deal to compile a version of gftype
that has maxrow, maxcol, and linelength increased (so that it's possible
to see all of the larger characters).

But wouldn't it be better if these parameters were dynamic?

(Of course I don't know if anybody but me still uses this lowlevel stuff.)

Cordially, Don

P.S. The above is the first of a series of suggestions, which I leave
to your imagination. We wrote the original TeXware and MFware with
various compile-time parameters.
