True. I've been able to fix this (combined some really ugly hacks to get
the font cacher to accept TrueType fonts from xfstt), and it makes
things a lot nicer. There are still a lot of widgets that don't check
the size of the font when deciding their own size, though, so a lot of
things look really bad. Even if the backend is supposed to scale
everything, I really think the widgets should use the character sizes
instead of hard-coded constants (would help make things look good until
everything is properly scaled, and it would handle fonts not being the
same pixel size for the same point size).
