Comparisons for letter spacings before and after adjustment

It appears to me that many kerning pairs in DejaVu Sans are a little bit
overdone and make the spacing between letters uneven. This is particularly
visible for pairs with T/V/R leading.

I adjusted a number of pairs with fontforge, and the results seems to be a
little better (see the attached screenshot). I am wondering if anyone want to
take a look and see if this change is acceptable.
