Subject: Re: What to do with too big glyphs (FS#9931)

How many glyphs are we talking about, roughly? And how prominent
(common) of glyphs?
I guess my real question is - where is the balance point? Turning a
20 height font into a 25 height font (losing 20% of screen
real-estate) because of one or two unusual glyphs seems drastic to me.
Would scaling down the oversized glyphs and only the oversized ones be
an option? I know it isn't the prettiest option, but...
How distinguishable are the oversized glyphs when clipped? (or is
that what I'm seeing in the first two FS images?)
