Would I have to manually define bickham as a math \cal font? I take it that mathalpha is not set up to access the semibold version of bickham.

I looked again carefully at what I had done, and found it was less than I had remembered. The fonts rbickham-r, rbickham-s and rbickham-b are the raw (ie, no custom metrics) in regular, semibold and bold. I seem not to have produced hand-crafted metrics in semibold, so there is no bickham-s, just bickham-r and bickham-b. I'm sorry for misleading you with this. If you tried to use rbickham-s as a substitute for bickham-s, you would find that the left and right side-bearings, the subscript positions and the accent positions would be intolerable. When I have some time, I'll work on that.
