I think the main point is that while `font-face-attributes' _can_ return
:weight, :width, etc., parameters, it should only do so if the user
explicitly specified them.  Right now it seems to always do so.

So, ideally:

    (font-face-attributes "Dejavu Serif")
    => (:family "Dejavu Serif")

    (font-face-attributes "Dejavu Serif-10")
    => (:family "Dejavu Serif" :height 100)

    (font-face-attributes "Dejavu Serif Italic")
    => (:family "Dejavu Serif" :slant italic)


Conservative, n. A statesman enamored of existing evils, as opposed to a
Liberal, who wants to replace them with new ones.
