Ah, I forgot this: `afmtodit' handles all glyph names containing a `.'
as unnamed glyphs.  This is intentional behaviour and normally what
you want.

Hmm.  Perhaps we shall add an option to `afmtodit' to retain glyph
variants.  Opinions?

Yes, this is one possibility.  Another one is to use `\N'
(cf. `europs.tmac') to map unnamed glyphs with `.char'.  However,
named glyphs are much more convenient to use...
