OK, but I'll probable surround it by docstrib switches

%<*oldstyle>

%</oldtslye>

I have no problem about the 9 to j renaming since it is corresponds
better to the list of fontname variants.

As for how it works, I'm a little surprised now.  It apperars that
\parse_family does a \setcomand\digit##1{##1oldstyle} and strips
the '9' or 'j' from the \font_variant and \raw_variant.  However,
it doesn't add it to the encoding shape, so you end up using the
default T1.etx rather than T1j.etx.

What are all these files, in particular T1a, T1aa, T1aw and T1aaw,
and where are they to be found?

Cheers, Ulrik.
