 Just out of interest, what use-case did you find for the soft
hyphen, U+00AD ?  I discovered a week or two ago that it was not in
LatGrkCyr-12x22 : someone who posted to lkml had one in his name (it
appeared to be spurious), but apart from that I've never needed it.
It's now on my ToDo list, but so are a lot of other things.

 The others are already in that font.
