You are right, I admint I haven't thought about this use case. People who
use the nikud fonts with the regular fonts should pass the "small-size"
option to the culmus-latex package. This will make the package use the font
size that appeared in older version of the package (which is the same for
non-nikud and nikud).
I decided it's better to release the package this way, and not delay it any
further because of nikud issues, as it was already delayed and the new
package have many important changes (especialy in the installation process).
I'll make the nikud work as the regular fonts and the next version will
surely have it. My current solution is to get the code from the *.fds files
into the culmus.sty so it will be possible to do the same fix I've done to
the regular fonts. As consquence the culmus.sty will have to be assembled
when the package is built (I admit part to the delay in nikud issues are due
to some problem I have with nikud documents not compiling correctly on my
system, I'm probably doing something wrong).
