Well you can hook into the resize events easily enough, and you can
query the allocations to find out how big your main window (Or any
subwindow type component) is. I think you can also specify fonts by
pixels -- The GTK font selector allows this, for instance. Given those
three things, I suspect what you want to do is possible. I haven't
done a whole lot of work with the GtkPixmap or any of the graphics
oriented components yet, though, so I don't personally know how to put
all that stuff together.

Correctly dealing with fonts is fairly tricky. Often, the user wants
to specify the fonts he wants to use along with a reasonable system
default. If you're expecing your application to get resized once and
then never again, it might be better just to let the user specify the
font or pull the font out of the GTK theme.
