BTW, one possible way to make :foundry work better might be to be _very_
relaxed about matching with it:  First try matching including the face's
:foundry, and if that returns "no match", then try matching agains with
:foundy "*".

That would allow the user to specify a foundry for special cases where
it's desired -- probably almost always together with a family name --
but avoid the undesirable effects caused by inheriting a :foundry
