This is dependent on bug #64232.

Once that's done, this is straightforward:

Assign lowercase Greek letters (spelled out, as is eqn's practice) the spacing type "letter" instead of "ordinary".

The dvi, html, pdf, and ps output drivers all set Greek lowercase Greek letters in italics.

We should do the same for nroff mode, given the known equation context.
