Ah yes, that's a good point -- not so rarely have I winced at a font name
rendered in itself. Even among "normal" fonts, Chancery being a good
example :)

Anyone for not showing the font name in default desktop font?

Another possibility would be to let it render in itself for English, but
allow using the default font on a per language basis, where the respective
language's translation coordinator would make this global choice in kdelibs.
