The Win32 gvim that I run uses a Win32 style font
selection panel so it's already been done. I think as
long as the interface meshes well with the platform,
different interfaces for such platform dependant
functionality is a good thing.

i would see it as a big advantage if vim used at least
what is available with "font dialogs" on the systems.
I know Mac users simply expect this kind of thing
and I think we should just give it to them.
As for X - way to go! But this should not be something
that Vim should give an answer to, right?
