i'm not "deeply conversant" with ae, either, but i used to use them

i doubt there will be any usability issues in replacing them with lm.
there might be problems from several minute changes of glyph shape (from
cm, that is): none of these can i actually see, but i'm assured they're
there, and i would be surprised if no-one will ever cry foul.
