Thanks, I will come up with a change that will refrain from calling
font-info unless it's strictly necessary.

Not sure, but I saw that the implementation of font-info actually
opens the font file, so there's probably some non-trivial processing
involved in that.  And likewise for font-face -- it calls the font
back-end.
