Poor man's oldstyle figures


I want to construct poor man's oldstyle figures by doing the following:

3,4,5,7,9, 	lower by (capheight-xheight)
6,8,	   	do nothing
1,2,0		scale *height* by xheight/capheight

this last one poses a problem to me:

	*height scaling?*

to scale the height, I want to use something like
\div{\int{xheight}}{\int{capheight}} (times 1000)

but I need a rounded integer, not a real.
I don't want to scale like the fake small caps since
this scales the width too. 
In other words, what is the ``glyph'' equivalent of

Thanks in advance,
