Hello (again) Thomas,

This is good stuff. I've tried to advocate a naming convention that would
be appropriate to this. I would suggest calling this texnansi-osfsc.enc,
as baseencoding-variant.enc. This is so a modified encoding can
"masquerade" as the base encoding within ConTeXt.

Given this encoding with my suggested name, you could therefore run
texfont as following:
 texfont --encoding=texnansi --variant=osfsc   --[other options]

Variants that select rarer features that Old Style Figures and Small Caps
may need to be given font-specific names, as rare glyph names tend to
vary wildly between fonts.
