Initial work to support opentype font features

Following up on an old patch I send to the list. One comment was to use a list
for combining multiple font features. This is now implemented. A possible issue
is the pango API needed is somewhat newer. I'll investigate where I need to set
that in an update (pointers and hints welcome).

Currently, LilyPond doesn't support OpenType font features.  For example, many fonts already contain glyphs for small caps letters, but lilypond can't access such glyphs directly since OpenType fonts don't need to have named glyphs, and you need to activate an OpenType feature (`smcp' in this particular case) so that input character codes get properly mapped to caps glyphs.

I suggest that we implement an interface similar to the `fontspec' package for XeTeX and luatex:
