Ah, wait, I recalled the history.  In Emacs 22, `nil' was
for "fontset-default", but while working on emacs-unicode-2
branch, someone suggested that nil usually should mean the
currently selected one.  I thought that was a good idea, and
was going to change `t' for the default fontset, and `nil'
for the the fontset of the current frame.

But, before finishing it (it seems that I just changed `t'
for the default), I forget about this matter when I got very
busy for the other tasks.  :-(

Sorry for the confusion, but what should I do now?

(1) Just recover the behaviour of Emacs 22: nil for the default
(2) Make nil for the currently selected fontset, and t for the default
(3) (1) and make t for the currently selected one.
