The v that is used in math mode has slightly curved sides, different from the Times-Italic v, which looks very much like the Greek nu. I do math textbook production and sometimes have publishers or authors who prefer the Times-Italic v for the v in math mode. Is it possible to create an option that would allow for this. It could work like the zswash option, which changes the flat base z to a swash bottom z.

As a temporary fix, you can do
Code:
\newcommand{\varv}{\ensuremath{\textit{v}}}

which will give you "variant v" (hence \varv), so you can do
Code:
\frac{d\varv{}}{dt}

for example.
