Summary description: Use the text font in maths mode

Announcement text:
    mathastext fixes an issue related to a feature of LuaLaTeX and
    luaotfload that OpenType fonts are declared in one of two modes:
    node and base, and only the latter is functional in math mode. But
    by default text fonts are declared in mode node. Thus mathastext now
    intervenes to make it so that the font it declares in math mode will
    use mode base. This fixes issues with for example old style figures
    being used while the text font used lining figures (or vice versa,
    depending on the font). But see the code comments for more.
