I've just installed a fix to check also an alias name in X
font-backend.  But, as Emacs accepts a fontconfig-style font
name too, for instance, "fixed" is parsed as a font of
family "fixed" which may match with many fonts.

Is keeping backward compatibility of (set-frame-font
"fixed") important enough to drop the support of
fontconfig-style name?
