I posted this earlier today to the TYPO-L list.  Any contributions welcome.

It's also difficult to get tracking (really necessary with non-optically 
sized fonts) and to do baseline-to-baseline skips.

I'm needing to write some TeX macros for title pages, and being able to 
specify baseline-to-baseline skips would be a great help.

Does anyone here know of work done on this topic since Don's original post?
