The above list form of face property value doesn't look right.  I
think it should be something like (mode-line (:weight bold)) instead.
Each element of the list should be either a named face or a list of
face attributes; see also the Lisp Reference.  The face property value
above looks like it will use the non-existent named face `:weight'.

Since faces from a list-valued face property are merged from left to
right (AFAIR), the faces in the list should also be reversed:
((:weight bold) mode-line).  Otherwise, if mode-line explicitly
specifies a weight, the (:weight bold) will have no effect.
