Using fontspec with Luatex it is possible to create a fake slant and use that as italic should no italics be around:

\setmainfont[ AutoFakeSlant=0.15 ]

However, also if an italic version exist this faked slant will be used both for \itshape and \slshape. How can I keep using the shipped italic font defined by the ItalicFont= parameter to \setmainfont but use fake slant for \slshape?

An example is Linux Libertine, that has no slanted version:

  SlantedFont={Linux Libertine O},
]{Linux Libertine O}
