Thanks, Werner; this works, on the lines of:
Say in /devps/TR, copy the line

  -       333,257 0       0055    hyphen

and change it to

  hy2     166,257 0       0055    hyphen

Then ".shc \[hy2]" will use a hyphen character which
pretends to have half the width, and therefore will
half hang out.

A pain, though, to have to change this in all font files!

Your other explanations are very plausible!

Best wishes,
