Summary: [DejaVu-fonts] Alignment mismatch of dot accents.

The different position of the diaresis compared to single dot above is what 
we've inherited from Bitstream Vera, I guess we can trust that Bitstream had 
some explicit and written out rules.

The letters with dot above accents were later added in DejaVu, and basically 
I've seen a lot of (professional) fonts behave quite differently with these 
dots (whatever you may say about what's usually done, test some fonts out 
first...), so I can quite easily understand that different developers in our 
project thought different things here. Basically, we don't have a mismatch 
either in DejaVu, we behave exactly the same as fonts like Tahoma, Arial, 
Minion or Myriad.

Anyway, what should happen is that the precomposed glyphs should display 
exactly the same as composed glyphs in the end, we're working to get that 
right, but it's a lot of work to do these things, as there are just thousands 
of these glyphs to check and fix.
