Is there any documentation on char-def.lua file format? If I'll understand 
it, I'll send a patch for the symbols I use.

Currently I have no idea why the following strings in char-def don't work.

    { class="nothing", name="intop" },
    { class="limop"  , name="int"   },

Replacing mathspec=... with mathclass="limop", mathname="int" seems to work 
(copied from n-ary summation).

BTW, in both solution ∫_a acts like \int\limits_a, not \int_a.
