But even when thinking of the performance, I think the 'font history'
part of the patch is non-controversial, right? :-)  So I'd say, let's
remove the option to show / hide the font history immediately (and show
it always), and test the other part on some old h/w a bit before pushing
- August, how does that sound, please?

Another thing to remove from the font listbox would be the bitmap
indicating the vector fonts; we do not show any bitmap fonts there any
more (do we?), so it is shown for every font in the list.

Thank you a lot,
