They have, to a great extent, and without having to abandon latexsym, which for other reasons (see new thread) was in principle not convenient for me! My 133-page doc, which previously typeset in 

real	3m39.757s
user	3m37.741s
sys	0m0.151s

now typesets in 

real	0m11.951s
user	0m10.563s
sys	0m0.060s

Impressive!!! Many thanks. And let me take this opportunity for praising microtype again: it adds that kind of typesetting excellence which TeX was initially aimed at.
