I was initially pretty negative about themes defining fonts. I too think
that they're pretty unnecessary and will cause more trouble than they're

However, with fontconfig and ~/.fonts/, we could fairly easily allow themes
to actually include the fonts they specify. At least, that would remove all
of my little personal objections to the idea. :-)
