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.
