How does the user know whether they want to:

 A) Make the font zoom factor bigger
 B) Make the individual font sizes bigger

Exposing these two axes in the same dialog strikes me as confusing.

(I don't consider us to expose these two axes currently .. the details
page of the dialog is all font-geek stuff; I *mostly* added it simply so
I could play around and figure out the right defaults for the
main page :-). Certainly by general GNOME GUI standards it shouldn't
be there at all.)
