Thank you, that worked.

I don't want that. I would still like to be able to have italic
letters by default, for example for quantities like magnetic
permeability.

All I need is a switch to make *all* the letters upright, including
the Greek ones.

So the only question is: is it an oversight or is it on purpose that
\rm doesn't also switch the Greek letters to their upright form?
