I think I didn't explain the problem right. I agree that it would be
nice if programs were DPI-aware.
The problem is that the idiots doing both X and windows built in
DPI-awareness to only *PART* of the graphics api. Font sizes were chosen
in "points". EVERY OTHER GRAPHIC was measured in pixels.
A graphics api where everything is measured in points (ie paying
attention to the DPI) would make sense. One where everything is measured
in pixels would also make sense. But this combination is a stupid idea
and we are paying for it today with the inability to scale graphics.
