Probably would have been clearer to support quotes...

Where, if at all, is this documented?  I just looked thru the online Pango
doc that discusses font descriptions,, and couldn't
find anything related.  The only use of commas it talks about is
comma-separated lists of families, etc.

From that same page:

PangoFontDescription * pango_font_description_from_string
                                                        (const char *str);

Creates a new font description from a string representation in the form "[FAMILY-LIST] [STYLE-OPTIONS] [SIZE]", where FAMILY-LIST is a comma separated list of families optionally terminated by a comma,

pango_font_description_to_string ()

char * pango_font_description_to_string (const PangoFontDescription *desc);

Creates a string representation of a font description. See pango_font_description_from_string() for a description of the format of the string representation. The family list in the string description will only have a terminating comma if the last word of the list is a valid style option.
