I wanted to ask about this on the list but I forgot :(

The thresholds here and in segment linking are in font units.  They
should be proportional to units_per_em.  As they work great for fonts
with 2048 units, I assume they are decided with 2048 units in mind.  If
this is not the case, please replace 2048 with an appropriate value.

I did the same to the latin module.  All Type 1 fonts would be affected.
(And I just found that the 3000 in the scoring formula should be scaled
