I kept pestering (pestering is my job, I never do anything myself... ;-)
George Williams and he suddenly had the flash of insight on how this is to
be done. It means that you get less families (not a separate family for a
slanted version if there already is an italics and so forth). It needs a
newer FontForge (formerly PfaEdit.

I am thinking about the 'family per desighn size' thing. I currently
produce a family per design size, but maybe I should fold the design size
in the family just as I do with the other variants. Probably cleaner. Yes,
I think I'll do it that way.
