Not really.

Last year I had been working on a patch that should significantly
improve font handling. For example it should be possible to set
individual text fonts (e.g. roman) without affecting the others already
set. IIRC this problem would also have been if not removed at least

Unfortunately I got stuck with some C++ code and fontconfig
dependencies. The thing is: I tried to solve two things at once (font
handling and the possibility to use notation fonts installed as system
fonts, and only one failed. So the stuff with the font handling should
be feasible when disentangling my code. It is on my todo-list to tackle
that, but unfortunately only after other things which I don't really
have enough time for either ...
