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.

I wrote "to define and *use* the some encodings".
If I understand correctly, "glyphshow" doesn't use any encodings but
"show" uses the encoding.
What I wrote as "use" means using "show" instead of "glyphshow".

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

Again, when both `-dgs-never-embed-fonts` and `--bigpdfs`/`-b` are used
at the same time, the intermediate PDFs become larger.
The disk size that `make doc` eats becomes increased.

If spliting -b, `-dgs-never-embed-fonts -duse-notation-font-encodings`
doesn't embed full set TrueType fonts.
It embeds subset for TrueType fonts, as with only using
The intermediate PDFs don't become larger.
The disk size that `make doc` eats doesn't become increased.
Nevertheless, the encodings for notation font is defined and "show" is
In my humble opinion, this is better than `-dgs-never-embed-fonts -b`.

Of course, if we do not have to worry about the increase in disk size
required, splitting -b is senseless as you wrote.
