True small caps and old-style numbers coming into Lilypond, this is
(again) one of my most-wanted features!

How/where do we find the list of font-features? I guess these "terms"
("smcp", "onum") are related to Pango and/or OpenType. Or are these
specific for each font?

For example which term should we use respectively for tabular numbers,
superior numbers, stylistic alternates, etc.?

Thank you Jay, you are adding nice and useful features to lily!
