Only the original concept. I'm far enough from that low-level hackery 
(at this point) that all I can do is endorse yours and Hans's solution 
as advancing the cause of font variants.


Speaking of, there's some good variant support in Gerben's now 
near-final release of the Mac fonts, in particular, the Hoefler Text 
typescripts give you independent access to Small Caps variants of all 
bold/italics in the family (as well as independent old-style/lining 
figures). You can pick it up in Gerben's i-Installer *EXPERIMENTAL* 
directory.
