Maybe for the size, but I'm not convinced of that. Maybe just use the
general font in a bigger size for that (without a preference). What
persona needs a desktop font different from the application font?

When it's eye candy vs. less preferences, I think less preferences is
more important. The window title font and the desktop font preferences
can probably be left in gconf easily, as that code is already there.

That's a problem of these fonts and maybe distributions should not ship
such fonts. Fonts the user added don't count - if they don't have bold,
then the window title will just not be bold.

I think four is too much already.

I'm not sure if that's the reason for the existence of the monochrome
option. I doubt it. It's maybe just for those that don't want
