Why don't we just change the default face definitions to something more
appropriate on a modern system?

Maybe it would be also useful to support something like web-browsers
use, where you could specify a "family" of "Dejavu Sans,Helvetica,Sans",
and it would split the list at the commas and use the first one it could

That way we could safely use "Dejavu Sans" [etc] when available, which
is probably the nicest and most consistent widely available choice on
modern FOSS systems.


Carefully crafted initial estimates reward you not only with
reduced computational effort, but also with understanding and
increased self-esteem.         -- Numerical methods in C,
