I do. In my publishing house we use sans serif fonts for figure  
labels, so I've used your sfmath.sty together with Francesco  
Constanzo & Gary Gray's WARMFigToPDF in Illustrator files. Before  
that, I had to DeclareMathAlphabets like \msfbf, \msfsl, etc., and  
then $\msfbf{v}\mathsf{(\msfsl{A})=0}$. Your package makes things  
easier for me.
