Well, it obviously works for Czech ;)

Check list archives for the discussion of composite glyphs for more
details.  Basicly they are not new glyphs, rather lout uses existing
base letter and existing diacritic mark and impose them to obtain a
letter with diacritic that doesn't have a precomposed glyph in the
font.  Thus you can use just standard Adobe fonts.

Of course you can also use fonts that have all the precomposed glyphs.
Pros and cons were already discussed to death.

And the glyph composition feature basicly does just that only at the
very low level.  The obvious benefit is that with lout doing the
composition at the backend level hyphenation is possible, because at
upper levels Lout deals with words not complex objects.
