    That doesn't help much. The difference between a character and a glyph
    variation has more to do with context than just the picture. The
    pseudo-Cyrillic frequently used in the US in connection with Russian
    matters may have Cyrillic glyph forms (like the reversed N), but is
    merely glyph variation of the Latin. This is clearly glyph variation,
    if it's a font meant to be used in place of the ordinary letters. This
    is clearly new characters, if they're both used in the same texts with
    contrasting meanings. Some cases in between are not so clear, but we
    need more information.
