While working on some non-Adobe, non-CFF TrueType
fonts, I am convinced that there are occasions where it
may be better not to use the Adobe Glyphs List, or at
least not the entire AGL with the corporate use area,
especially for fonts that use those Private Use Area
for other purposes.

I suggest adding a command-line option so the user may
choose whether to use the whole AGL, AGL minus
corporate use area, or not at all.

(Hmm... come to think of it, maybe I should have posted
this on the mailing list first... Ah well... :-)

Cheers,

Anthony
