Hmm, interesting makes it sound like it ought to be treated as a math font
then so that one can use the bogus metrics used in math fonts to 
position subscripts and superscripts.  Of course, that does mean
using up yet another math family.  Does it make sense to squeeze it
in with another math font (and then have to translate character codes
from A-Z to wheever it has to fit in the remaining space)?
