the bar in \hbar is uncomfortably
close to the top serif of the 'h'.
I forwarded that to Jacko & Janusz. Thanks.
the too high dieresis in CM has been known for a long time, which is
why german.sty and its descendants contain code to lower it.
Too bad. I can't imagine any way the macros can know whether LM or CM
outlines are being used, since cmr10.tfm is being used in both cases.
And it would be a step backward to continue the too-high dieresis in LM.
Given this, it seems we cannot replace CM with LM.
There is a further problem that the hinting of the LM fonts is rather
strange at the moment
I reported that to J&J too.
Thanks again for your careful analysis.
