As part of the work for bug 441473, support for downloable fonts was
implemented on Mac and Windows.  For Linux, there's additional work required in
our Pango font code to hook into this mechanism, this is being done under bug

Once that bug is complete, the work for this includes:

* within font selection code, lookup fonts within the user font object when
* load/unload fonts using downloaded data [src: url()]
* lookup specific font faces using the full name of a given face [src: local()]
