This would then have to be a strip at D-I build time instead of font udeb 
build time, otherwise you'd have serious synchronization problems.
I'm not sure that we want to complicate the D-I build process that much.

Also, this is a completely separate issue from what we were discussing as it 
would _still_ result in duplication of latin characters.
