xfstt goes into Fontpath as a font server.  You can I suppose use xset in
~/.xsession but that's hardly useful for globally available fonts.

I've got beginnings of ideas here but I won't have them for a few days
until I have time to think clearly, which will be after I've finished
reading email, writing email to the people I need to (mostly LinuxWorld
event related stuff) and essentially just getting caught up.  If someone
hasn't come up with more interesting ideas before then, I'll post
something probably.
