Well, as you know, I tend to do it by using TeX, making a big copy of
the character and then tracing it with something like Illustrator or
ScanFont. And, as you know, the results are sometimes infelicitous.
But if there aren't too many characters involved and if you don't need
it right away, I can do it for you. But you knew that, too.
