You need a -testcard if you want to see something, otherwise it makes
the font, for use by other files or for inclusion in another file, but
there is nothing to see.

How many glyph elements does it have?  I'm guessing two.

Sounds like the -l and -h ranges result in subsetting of the glyphs
but do not trigger subsetting of kern pairs. Adding that to the code
should not be especially hard.

Meanwhile, you can strip out most of the kern pairs - in fact, if you
only want one glyph, you don't need any kern pairs at all.
