Can you please try to have only a glib/pango dependency? I see no
reason you need a GNOME dependency here.

If it has a GNOME dependency, people will have to reimplement a
generally-useful solution. Most Linux distributions won't be able to
adopt a GNOME-specific solution for installing fonts, for example.

It's OK to have a library on top that actually requires GNOME, for
stuff like dialogs, but installing fonts etc. should be below the GTK

Probably shouldn't call it GnomeFont either, perhaps GFont with a
gfont_ prefix for functions, similar to GConf.
