No, please don't! Currently Amarok shows at least 3 different fonts in
about 8 different sizes, with bold, italics and whatever all over the
place.  We need to do a font cleanup first. One single font, please!!!
Everything else is a design error IMHO. Once this is done we still can
add bolds and italics if absolutely necessary.

For now Amarok looks a total mess on my screen with big resolution,
and it looks even worse with a lover one. Guess how it looks on the
jukebox .. :-(

And could we please invest in something else than grey over grey and
grey again? I wouldn't wonder if some fonts are in fact dark grey
instead of black...
