I don't think that's a great idea. The rest of my system uses Pango's
algorithms for doing font fallback and font shaping, and I don't see a
reason to differ from it.
Not to mention that it's very unlikely that I want my window title to
suddenly switch completely to a fullwidth font because it had one Japanese
character in it.
