Right. In the current trunk, x-list-fonts is the old way of listing fonts, list-fonts is the new font backend's way (but with slightly different arguments). This affects X more than Windows, because x-list-fonts will only list X core fonts there, whereas font-list will list all active backends' fonts.

Once the old font code is removed, we can make x-list-fonts a compatibility layer on top of list-fonts, and tweak it so that it works with any of the supported formats (xfld, fontconfig, font-spec/entity/object) on input.
