Hi Mikhail,

Other than using font tables, I'm not sure there's any other way to
get cyrillics symbols from PyNGL (our font expert, Fred, may have more
to say on this).

Meanwhile, can you indicate how using font tables ends up being
time-consuming? Then, we might be able to give you some tips to
improve this.
