That seems to work! The only downside (if it is one), is that Greek in
mathematical expressions is now also unslanted (see attached). That's no
big deal for me, as I almost never have Greek text and mathematics in the
same document (and I prefer upright Greek in math anyway) -- but could
someone who does write mathematical papers in Greek construe that to be a
bug, or at least undocumented behavior?
