So far I didn't encounter other problems, apart from my insufficient math...
I just asked on -user for some problem.

Beam uses `grob::unpure-vertical-skylines-from-stencilĀ“ for vertical-skylines.
I plan to use `grob::always-vertical-skylines-from-stencilĀ“ there for Slash.
Though, as far as I know this has no direct impact on the used stencil
