Oops. That was with an image that did not yet have the updated gtk-set-font.

With a good image there are differences (the latin characters look
"thinner"). It should be up to the translators to decide.
The most significant difference is probably in punctuation: periods, commas, 
dashes, brackets, etc. This is an aspect of the exclusion I had not really 
realized before.

Something else: at least one codepoint is missing in the Abyssinica font 
ATM. It shows up in the mirror country selection list: codepoint 1316.
