Feel free to copy it or even to continue working on it (I presume
I'd need to tell the CTAN team you can become the maintainer, if
you want). BTW, it should work with aux files, with the activechars
option, because chars are written in the LICR, ie, an encoding
independent form.

As to the fonts, one of my approaches was creating an "Unicode"
font on the fly combining the T1 and TS1 files when a T1 was
requested (with a callback). This would allow to use current
fonts without changes and to avoid the LICR mechanism, based
on active chars - this is very important (in fact, it's
essential) in a non Latin context, to provide an interface
not based solely in English.
