Here, fontset works as just a provider of font-related properties
(family, weight, size, etc), and then, based on the selected font, a new
fontset is automatically created.  This roundabout behavior was not to
break (Emacs-internal) backward compatibility by introducing the concept
of fontset.

At least, calling set-fontset-font for the fontset of the current frame
should work... and worked as far as I rememnber... but I've just found
that this does not work with the latest Emacs?!?

(set-fontset-font nil 'unicode-bmp "dejavu sans mono")
(set-fontset-font nil 'unicode-bmp "Freemono" nil 'append)

I'm now checking what is wrong.
