 Yeah, I know. The point is, my fonts look perfectly fine here even with the 
real DPI (unless there's something wrong with my eyes or I've gotten so used 
to bad fonts). And, of course, the technical problems pointed out by Germain. 
It kinda makes me feel insane for trying to push in a feature that nobody 
should use.
