That :family keyword in that line is controlled by the M-x customize
interface inserting to the Emacs's initial configuration setup
file... well, anyway, I had hoped to learn something about the UTF-8 and
Unicode by messing with Emacs.FontBackend in .Xdefaults.  But it wasn't
the original driving intent.  I only wanted to get a better looking font
and not the particularly ugly default in scarey quote in emacs-28 build


That file sampling various languages displays relatively immediately.
Like under 2.0 seconds.  I don't experience the delay like waiting for 4Gb
to transfer before a file with multiple languages displays.

OK.  I got a good idea.  Who is the fastest will win.  Boeing.  SpaceX.  Go...
