   As I said, other distros solved the qt? / gtk? / dpi font 
disparities quite a while ago.  Seems just borrowing their 
(Mdv) 'fixes' would be better than reinventing the wheel.

   Since switchin to FC, I jus figured FC hasn't done it since KDE 
seems to be treated like a junk yard dog in Fedora. Still a lot of 
FC users use KDE, but like me, many Gnome apps too. An it seems to 
me this is more important that searchin for a default font.
