Have you tried the current CVS version with the diagonal stem control
feature? I have put special efforts to implement DStem support for
fontforge's "Change glyph" (and add small caps, sub/superscripts) 
dialog, at now it works reasonably good in my tests. Of course the
resulting glyphs may require some manual work, but at least diagonals
are no longer a problem IMO.
