aFont := LogicalFont familyName: 'DejaVu Sans Mono' pointSize:100.

helper methods in LogicalFont to do this type of thing? A lazy LogicalFont
class>>loadSystemFonts would be less invasive than setting the preference
to load fonts on startup, since it could be triggered as needed and cost
I am thinking of LogicalFont mostly because I learned to look there a long
time ago, so it is the first place I go for fonts.
