Well, maybe the default configuration doesn't. However, it
be possible (from what you wrote, I don't do Gtk) to configure the
dialog to filter on the average width.
Unfortunately, the default widget doesn't do that: you can filter on
foundry, weight, charset, slant, set width, spacing. And on the font
type: bitmap, scalable, scaled bitmap. No reason why it might not in
a future version, I guess.
That, in combination with the spacing type being either m(onospace)
or c(character cell), should give you most of what you want (at
least if the dialog itself remembers both last choice and filter).
If there is a way for XEmacs to get its hands on the filter setting,
then XEmacs could use that to make good choices of appropriate
defaults for logically related faces. Am I missing something?
But this is in theory: in practice some X servers will do horrible
things if you try to do that (autoscaling, in particular).
Yes, probably. You're right about the Mule issues, too.
