This would be utmost unfortunate, as the PLUS-MINUS SIGN is widely
used in scientific, and technical, applications to denote tolerances
in specifiacations, or the accurracy of results. I canot imagine a
technical, or physical, publication that would manage without this
very symbol.

If indeed the sputnik-like CURRENCY SIGN (aka Ricardi-Sun) will be
needed, then I'd rather throw out the CENT SIGN - after all, this
is meant to be a European character set.
