The font size is the same, I was not trying to make the Greek look bad. It
simply does because the two scripts have diverged as time has gone by.

I don't see _any_ advantage to treating Coptic differently from Cyrillic or
Gothic or Etruscan vis à vis Greek. It is a separate script just as they
are. There is a lot of identity between all of the scripts and Greek. Users
will benefit, in my view, from the separation.
