Braces are very special animals because they can't just be scaled up and

That's the only reason why there even is a special encoding ("FetaBrace")
and a special lookup command.
There are lots and lots of differently sized braces in the Feta/Emmentaler
font.



Hm … couldn’t one draw such braces with a generic stencil in PostScript like it’s done for slurs and ties? The Metafont code for the font braces is generic so I think one could translate it to PostScript.
