According to an X guru I talked to on IRC, there is an X function
"QueryExtension" for testing whether the server has a particular
extension. Why can't GTK+ just use this, and enable the xft renderer if
xft is available? And then you could say GDK_DISABLE_XFT=1 if you
really didn't want to use xft for some reason.
