updated patch

http://blogs.gnome.org/thos/2009/07/26/re-adding-fonts-in-gnome/ prompted me to
try to update my miserable little patch trying to expose more useful font
metadata and make the links clickable. (Also adding a more understandable title
and some minor rewording of the output messages).

I tried to play with the sizes but it's not quite there. A glade approach is
probably what we need to take into account the variability of the fields across
the many fonts out there. Anyway, it may be the start for something better so
I'm attaching it.

Issues to deal with: 
 - alignement
 - hard-wrapping of some fields
 - conflicting callback signals 
 - use of expanders/twisties.

Please cluebat and fix. I need to learn.
