[XeTeX] discovering script support

Is there a program (preferably a command-line program) that will tell me
what scripts an OpenType font supports? The 2016 fontspec is giving me
a warning where I wasn't getting one before, e.g.
* fontspec warning: "script-not-exist"
* Font 'Nikosh' does not contain script 'Bengali'.
I've tried fc-list --verbose (including fonts that I know have script
info), but afaict fc-list does not display script info. I've tried
googling this question, but the word "script" seems to be generic enough
that I can't find anything useful. There are plenty of hits with "does
not contain script", but not afaict any that tell me how to determine
what scripts a font supports.
It may of course be possible that this font supports the Bengali script,
but doesn't explicitly say that. But it makes me uneasy...
