The target users are people who want to use a monowidth font with lots
of Unicode coverage in their e-mail...
Ẽṽẽrsõñ Mõñõ's tilde is rather large; one reason the bowl is
convenient is that it surrounds a breathing rather nicely. Everson
Mono also puts breathings and accents above capital letters in Greek.
I could change from inverted breves to tildes. Or I could keep the
inverted breves. What do people think about this?
