Summary description: Tools to simplify using fonts (especially TT/OTF ones)

Announcement text:

Changes in autoinst:

- The generated style file redefines \textsuperscript and \textsubscript, and
  patches Latex's footnote mechanism to use superscript figures instead of
  scaled-down regular figures.

- A few bugfixes in font metadata parsing, style file generation and the -t1suffix
  option; the latter now also works with dvips and dvipdfmx, not just with pdflatex.

- Added support for the T4 (African), T5 (Vietnamese), CS (Czech), L7X (Lithuanian)
  and QX (Polish) encodings.
