Thanks for the links, I hadn't come across them before. Will file them 
away to study over a rainy weekend.

Looks great! I see you've found another use for glyph bounds; very 
useful primitive. (By the way, don't forget about eTeX's \dimexpr  :) 
Or perhaps I should be encouraging you to try out expl3...)

I wonder if this would work nicely with unicode math fonts, which I 
believe can have any number of extensible delimiter sizes.

There was someone on c.t.t. just the other day complaining that TeX 
didn't grow his large operators for him...
