I was unsure, my tests with the various ft tools in the command lines
show it NULL. I tried to be sure that it was always the case when the
family name is not defined or something wrong happened. The docs did
not explicitally say it :). I also took  a look in other projects,
there is a lot of projects out there using family_name without
previous checks, maybe it is worth a little note in the doc ?

A last question, is there a better (cleaner) way to access this property?
