    That can be fixed with one download.

    That can be fixed with a search-and-replace.

    THAT's a problem!

    You'd have to start releasing the new fonts for a few years before releasing
    the keyboard driver.

    But that's not such a stumbling block as it might be a few years before some
    important apps are swapping anything for simple scripts anyway.

    Yes! I thought smart fonts would *ignore* a variation selector unless told to
    do *otherwise*. Perhaps a new class of Variation Selector-like codepoints
    could have that behavior, or Uniscribe could be altered to do it for VS's.
