That's a very good change, yes.

If it can fix the problem that the default font size is much too large
for all my screens (a 1600x1200 21" desktop, a 1400x1050 14" laptop,
and a 1024x600 10" netbook), then I'm all for it, and I know I wouldn't
be the only user to appreciate the change.  See bug#4547 for example.
