Summary description:  Use the text font in maths mode

Announcement text:
 New feature: the initial release dealt with only one font, and
 although shortly thereafter the 1.11 version added support for
 extended math versions, it was documented that some font-dependent
 set-up (minus as endash, dotless i and j, hbar, math accents) was
 done only once.  This release makes the relevant characters font
 encoding savvy in each mathastext-extended math version.  Thus,
 they should render correctly even with multiple math versions
 using fonts with varying encodings.

 The implementation is compatible with Unicode engines and mixed
 usage of TU encoding (OpenType fonts) with traditional 8bits TeX
 font encodings.  For all engines, all used (8bits) encodings must
 have been passed as options to the fontenc package.

 Thanks to Falk Hanisch for feature request and code suggestions.
