gdk_im_decide_style has nothing to do with styles. It is part of
the X Input Method extension support.

I think this is referring to the action both of the code
in gtk_widget_realize, and to what happens in the widget's
"realize" callback that that function calls. The latter does
the attachment.

The realize() callback does not need to call gtk_widget_ensure_style(),
because that is already done implicitly before the realize() callback
is called.

Hmmm, I don't know a good solution to this one. I think you'll
have to leave the fixed font hardcoded in for now.

see gdk_[text/string]_extents() the was added into the 1.1 branch
