So again, every application that needs to do something like this
should implement its own solution?  Is there no library that handles
these issues?

perhaps fontconfig
is what we need, although It's linux-specific so another solution will
have to be devised for OSX/Windows

FontConfig works also under Windows. It's included in the precompiled
binaries for windows. I didn't test it, though. But I think it's functional.


It is available on OSX as well. There is a version bundled with X11, with other versions available from Fink and DarwinPorts.

I'm able to get a list of all TrueType fonts by ...

        $ fc-list : file | grep '.ttf'

Does this work on windows as well?
