I believe the Learning Research Group at Xerox created it as an
experiment, for Smalltalk-76. The sloped lines in most glyphs gives it a
special look. What they found was that this actually made it harder do
tell a glyph from another, as you say. Later it was abandoned.
I am aware of its limitations. But it is of historical significance. I
think it is nice to have it around.
