Just a little bit ;-)

Saving and restoring frames, which should (and could) produce unwanted
results because I don't save the font parameter.

The same one I'm developing. Save&restore frames&windows.

That currently, if you save a frame, and then start Emacs with another
fontset, and then desktop-read, the frames will not have the same size
(pixel-wise), which can be a problem for big frames or frames where
the exact size is important.

If the font parameter were saved, recreating the frame would use it.

I'm QUITE afraid you will now say that in some cases you want the font
saved (you already said as much), but in other cases you would the
frames to be "transparent" to the font, so restoring them woul inherit
the current default font of the running Emacs.

Yes. The font value of a frame parameter cannot preclude you doing
(set-default-font "DejaVus Sans Mono-15" nil t) and changing every
frame in sight.

For features, all input is welcome. For bugs, I would prefer if you
could wait untill you stumble upon it ;-)
