If Bill hadn't just gone home a few minutes ago, he'd probably point out
that 508 requires everything on the desktop to track the user's One True
Theme-- so if we do maintain a different font setting for desktop icons
(and I can see why we'd want to), we probably need a "just use the
current default gtk font at all times" option for it as well.  You can
argue with Bill about whether it should be the default or not :)
