I can't do that right now, but I will do over the next few days. I'll also
include some other .notdef glyphs I have come across in fonts.
It's not so much pop art as op art. My guess is that, using b/w bitmap
rendering, it could not be cleanly rendered below 12 ppm, presuming it was
scaled to the cap height, which is what I typically do for the .notdef
glyph. Below that size, you would have less than 8 pixels to deal with. It
could be made taller, of course, up to the full body height.
