	I spent a while doing this for gnome-core's gnome-terminal; the source
is all there, gnome-terminal/gnome-x-font-selector.[ch].

	I forget the state of it; it certainly compiles & links and has a
chance of working. It clearly needs some work - it uses shed loads of
deprecated API - CLists, gdk X font stuff etc. etc. so ... that's prolly
an issue.

	Of course, it would be really nice to write this once for the
BonoboUIHandler, and serialize the result as an XML <keybinding>
section, but ...

	If you work on gnome-x-font-selector.[ch] can you make it clear where
the authoritative code is, it's bad enough having uncertainty and people
working on different terminals, without lots of copies of partially
ported X font selectors ;-)

	Also - we need a decision on this issue - if we go with your terminal -
which seems ok as a scheme, I'd like to see it in gnome-core under
eclectic maintainership, and get Gediminas working with you instead of
against you.

	Ultimately it seems we need some sort of decision on this issue, and
then a lot of hacking to get 1 good terminal out of the options.
