[Fontconfig] GTK+ and re-scanning font cache

 Just wondering, this is prob. a faq and not on the right list:
 While a GTK+ app is running (pyGTK) is it possible to install a new font (say 
drop it into ~/.fonts) and have the app recognize that it's there and display 
it, without having to restart it?

(I am drawing a string to the screen via pango and cairo).
