Just to follow up, something really weird happens when using stylistic
sets 6 and 7: "dogstarman" becomes "doaaarrman". The two PDFs
demonstrate the difference between MiKTeX 2.8 and tl2010. Also see
http://gabriolan.ca/gabriola-font-variants/ for reference (MiKTeX
stumbles on ss06 and ss07, but not to the extent of tl2010).
