I am sorry, but I have just reverted the push of your change based on
what Michael wrote (and I previously too).  Please note that .sfd is the
source, and .ttf is generated.  When you use .sfd as the source in
fontforge, the change will be minimal, not a 85k lines long patch.

Can you please re-try with editing the .sfd in fontforge?

[If you use .ttf as the source, and generate .sfd out of that, it is
similar as if you import .pdf in LO, and export it to .odf - ie. it is
possible, but not what we want, provided that we have the .sfd source.]
