FWIW, I agree with these points. Even if we later dropped the barcode,
we'd still need the OCR-A font (or something similar). And the case
for (sometimes) exceeding the info space of 1-D is now persuasive.

I guess I should write to the developers list, and try to get these
features as part of "Milestone 2".
