This is someones interpretation of 508. In reality the 508 spec is 
incredily vague and says nothing about themes. I think it is enough that 
both fonts are configurable in the same dialog.

How do you define the one true theme? One file? A given set of gconf keys? 
One dialog to config them? A "use system font" option is stupid, and I
won't add one.

Of course, if the desktop font is not set we should fall back on the 
default gtk+ font.
