Combining them means that the size of the final PDF may be smaller but
the size
of the intermediate PDFs will be larger.
In my experiment, even if there is a bug in gs's full set font
embedding, the
disk size that `make doc` eats has increased.

I did not check that, but I would expect an increase in disk usage for
the build.

If I understand correctly, `--bigpdfs` / `-b` has two effects.
One is to embed full set (non-subset) font.
The other is to define and use some encodings for Emmentaler.

It also changes the way emmentaler glyphs are printed. With --bigpdfs we
use the "show" postscript operator, without it we still use "glyphshow".
And the three emmentaler fonts for every size in the intermediate
versions of our pdfs are not 3 copies of the full emmentaler-xx font but
are three different fonts made of emmentaler-xx glyphs. Those subsets
must not be further subsetted.

No, it is senseless to split -b into separate options.
