+It's amazing how hard this is to do.  It should appear in the
+ToHLogFont, but it doesn't.  There's nothing on the Font object that
+tells us this is a fixed font.  There seems to be two ways to do this:
+- Measure two letter widths, like "i" and "m" and see if they are the
+- P/Invoke to the OS, and use any native methods they have.
+Attaching a patch that uses the first mechanism.  It reports close to
+the same fonts as MS, but adds a few useless ones like WebDings.
+If anyone else wants to take a better stab at this, feel free.
