I don't know. :-) Han-Wen probably can answer this -- if it's not
possible to use features right now, maybe it can be implemented some

No.  However, for backwards compatibility, it's always good to go the
way of the least surprise.  On the other hand, lilypond changes its
formatting very often so I think that changed metrics are probably
just a minor thing.

Of course.  Nothing should prevent the user to use Schoolbook Century
if she wants to.

Good question.  Han-Wen, is there still a reason why we distribute the
PFB versions?  Except feta-alphabet[1] they aren't directly used.


[1] This is something I consider a bug.  I can't see a reason to use
    feta-alphabet separately since the glyphs are already in the
    emmentaler font.
