be application specific but desktop wide.

Alright. I'll try parse some of the code in (argh, gmail in browser, can't
access other emails) that Font<something> code base you mentioned. To get
the idea. I don't hold much hope in success without some docs too.

the functions provided by glib, unless you really want to avoid depending
on it for whatever reason.

Is there a known Python 2.7 package (i.e. available on most Linux package
systems) out there that will do this?

(Meanwhile, I'm searching for python + glib + XDG)

Thanks for your help!
