I can provide some justification why I ask for these patches.

These patches change the shape of the characters which are (in unicode
notation) cyrillic small letter ve, cyrillic small letter de, cyrillic small
letter ghe and cyrillic small letter i.

The default shape of these letters in terminus font is more common for a
written script shape, or for italic shape of some fonts. All other cyrillic
letter shapes of this font are more common for a printed script shapes. I can
provide you with examples of these letters in other printed and scripted fonts.

I attach a file which has samples of these four letters rendered with different
fonts. If you compare the shapes you can conclude that the shape of these
letters without patches corresponds more to an italic or script font, but not
for a regular face. That is why I'm asking to apply these patches by default.
