I omitted one issue from my mail yesterday, the 'match' method of
FontFace doesn't make any sense.  A FontFace object represents a
single face of a font family.  Font matching is the operation of
picking the closest match for a given set of font properties (*not*
descriptors!) *and* a given character.  So any form of 'match'
operation applies to a set of faces and never to a single face.  The
only place a 'match' method makes sense is on the FontFaceSet object.

Cheers,
