Sounds interesting, but I'll have to think about it more carefully
before I can comment on the implementation.

Generally, I would welcome it, if we could get rid of the script- 
and scriptscriptsize radicals in MXP.  However, if that means 
loading MXP in three sizes by default I'm a little worried about the
side-effects it might have on the choice of big delimiters and big
operators.  I suppose I'll have to reread Appendix G once again.

Cheers, Ulrik.

P.S.  If possible I'd like to reshuffle MXP and MX1 once again to get
a nicer appearance of the font tables before submitting the final
papers for the EuroTeX proceedings, i.e. before the end of next week.
I'd also like to fix a few remaining problems such as the upright
Greek in the MC layout until then.
