Sorry, I come after the push.

A. In order to give this nice and long-wanted (also by users other
than me) feature some visibility, could it be documented in the
Notation Reference as well (NR 1.8.3 Fonts)?

So the users will not only be able to use it, but also know how it
(finally) exists.  :D

B. Furthermore, as an advanced improvement, it would be nice if the
\smallCaps command would behave like this :

1. if the font have real small caps, \smallCaps should use them
(font-features . ("smcp")) ,
2. else : fake it (like \smallCaps nowadays).
However I do not know if it would be possible for LilyPond to
*determine* if the font used possesses real small caps.

C. Introducing an \oldstyleNumbers command would be great (with as
advanced improvement the same idea as for B.1. and 2.).

Thank you in advance again for this nice feature Jay!

> 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
