GdkFont remains, so that porting won't be nightmarish, but any code
that uses it will not internationalize properly. There may be a couple
legitimate uses for it, maybe for terminal programs or something.

GtkFontSelection doesn't appear to have a parallel Pango API - a bug
report on that would be good. Seems busted. (Or maybe we'll just
remove the GdkFont from fontsel, I don't know the plan here.)
