Yes, I heard some people want it and it's reasonable. I'll do it with
next upload for otf-ipafont but now I'm waiting for upstream bug fix
release (well, I have the one, however upstream ask me to wait until
they would release for public, *sigh* ;). So please wait a while...
I'll upload it in this month to NEW queue (with someone's help :)
Thanks for your report.
