Summary: Confusion when changing kerning settings within a paragraph

Initial Comment:
Extra kerning now has this nasty, unreliable kind of
paragraph scope, so that whether or not extra kerning
will be applied depends on whether tex needs to
hyphenate the paragraph, and whether a word contains a
discretionary.
(Same as for \pdfnoligatures [see discussion in feature
req 385], for which this may be an acceptable
limitation, since it has global scope, anyway. However,
I don't consider it acceptable for the kerning feature.
Think of language-dependant settings, for example.)

\hsize 7cm
\pdfadjustspacing0
\knaccode\font`s=500
\knbccode\font`s=500
