While checking Malte's feta flag patches I've just seen that the 1/8
and 1/16 up-flags (i.e., glyphs `flags.u3' and `flags.u4') have a
width approx. 10% larger than other `flags.uX' glyphs – this is also
reflected in the lilypond metrics embedded in the fonts. Note that
the two larger widths are artificial (i.e., manually specified to be
larger than the actual shape).
Is there any reason for this? Given that there is always the need of
compressing music horizontally, having too wide flags looks
BTW, this issue is not related to Malte's changes (which look fine).
