a full swash italic font with automatic ligaturing for uppercases
(including accented ones), plus maybe automatic ligaturing of some extra
pairs than the standard ones, and maybe also automatic selection of long
s/short s or other special ending charachters.

(An example could be how to use the full set of AJenson, making caps
printing normal caps inside a word, and swash caps at the beginning,
plus some other niceties...) -- well I didn't count, I didn't even try
