Fair enough. I'd still like to address a matter which you raised in  
passing which I believe is the source of your difficulty, at least  

We still haven't worked up a good interface for handling analphabetic  
fonts such as pi or border fonts --- unfortunately there's no easy,  
automatic answer like w/ text fonts since these won't have  
unambiguous unicode points (AFAIK).

The best thing I can think of is to create a general package (for  
handling borders) and then to create specific options for it which  
match specific font encodings so that it would need to be extended  
for each font --- could nothing better be managed?
