This isn't one of the mission statement items, so I'm stripping the "UPGRADE:" prefix.

This is a separate enough problem that I created a separate feature request for it, bug #60587.

Ideally, a mechanism to specify such kern pairs in the font files could also be added.  This would address bug #44715.

Groff should allow a document author to define new kern pairs, including ones between characters from different fonts.

This functionality is available in Heirloom troff's .kernpair request.
