Given the wider prevalence of condensed/expanded faces on platforms like Mac OS
X and the increasing number of open source fonts like the Deja Vu family which
contain condensed/expanded faces, I'm going to bump up the priority of this
one. Without this attribute these faces are effectively unusable, since no
combination of font-xxx attributes will resolve to a condensed face if a normal
face is around.  On Windows, where font families are currently unified using
the "four faces per family" rule, the font-family attribute can be used but
this doesn't work when name unification is done to include a fuller set of
faces within a single font family, as is done under Mac OS X.

Stuart says he has a work-in-progress patch.
