Right, that works if you just want to use theme fonts. The
problem comes when you use gnome font dialogs or the like. They
seem to require daemons. I suppose that one could write a GTK
theme file, but it's probably more trouble than it's worth.
Gnome also seems to require daemons for the likes of mouse
cursors (which only appear for GTK+ apps...). Hm. It's a mess.

Firefox, which is the only GTK-ish app that I use, doesn't care
much, though, as long as you don't use the `native' theme. It
draws its own menus, and uses whatever fonts its theme
specifies. (Incidentally, you should all try out Vimperator.)
