I just realized that there's no way to unset the font once you've set
it.  As a result, if you select a high-contrast theme, you won't get the
font to come along with it if you've already selected a font.  Not a
killer (as you can select a big 'ol font too), but prolly broken.  I'll
fix up the wording here and add a 'Customize your fonts' check button.
