So, the default font options don't save across session on MacOS.

What I did is:

o clicked `Option > Set Default Font...'
o Reduce the font size (from 12 to 11)
o Closed the window
o Clicked `Option > Save Options'

Quit Emacs
Restart Emacs

I was seeing size 12 font again (and would see 12 selected in going back
to Options > Set Default Font')

I would have expected to see the font at the same size as saved in the
previous session.

Although I'm not 100% sure what that code is doing (Customize is
completely foreign to me) I've pushed the code to master under David's

Fix font-panel on NS (bug#43480)

accrued over the years).
