No, what your patch does is fine with me, actually.  It does call out
font names, which is what I had in mind.

The result on my system is to use Consolas where Emacs previously used
Courier, to display symbols in Info buffers.  I don't mind the change,
but I'd urge others to try the patch and see if it causes any
problems.

No one is these days, unfortunately.

Thanks.
