But difficult.  pdftex already disassembles charstrings and subroutines
to figure out which subroutines are used, but it does not change and then
reassemble them.

I think you will have to wait until Fabrice compiles a version with the patch
applied.  I have a Windows box here at work, but no C compilers. Unless Fabrice
uses cygwin.
