BTW, I'd like to port GnomeAbout to Pango, for which I will need to use
pango_font_get_metrics and something to get the width of a given string (I
forgot the function's name, but I remember seeing it somewhere). However,
both of these need a `lang' argument. What is it for and what should I
pass there?
