I find these functions odd.

`facemenu-set-face' just does this:

  (facemenu-add-new-face face)
  (facemenu-add-face face start end)

after reading a face name with `read-face-name'.  So it's a very thin
shim over `facemenu-add-face'.

`M-x facemenu-add-face RET foo RET' and nothing happened.  Then I did
`M-x facemenu-add-face RET bold RET', and it errored out saying

Invalid face reference: foo

Huh?

I have no idea what these two functions are supposed to be doing, but I
don't think...  they are doing...  whatever they should be doing.
