Isn't this quite similar to the way bitmap fonts are currently picked? 
They have their 'design size' already which is just the normal pixelsize 
property, it's in _FcMatchers and when I request 'Lucida:pixelsize=17.5' 
I get a close neighbor, in this case the 17px version. Granted I'm not 
really sure how much of the existing logic could be applied in a 
situation where it's necessary to support upper/lower bounds...
