          It's one of the directions I'll try to tweak your

font access as clean and simple as possible. And do the
scaling of fonts in the renderers with the most appropriate
- not yet choosen - algorithm.

Hmmm, yes.

One thing which becomes more and more self-evident as I convert objects,
is that we almost *never* ever use a DiaFont without passing a size
argument as well. This pleads for putting the (nominal) size >inside<

Remember that the objects don't pass a size that's useable by Pango, it
first has to be converted by the zoom factor of the display.  Which means
that we can't hope to this:

I think we could make this look similar to

     /* Objects care for a specific font in a dia_unit.
      * Currently the font family/face and the size are
      * still splitted. If they become merged the standard
      * GtkFontSelection widget could probably be used to
      * let the user choose
     obj->font = dia_font_new ("Courier 12")

Yes.  The string would be a stringified PangoFontDescription -- that way
we don't even need to parse it.

because we always have to parse the size.
