This way, switching to using the Vera fonts (or the MS webfonts or any
other set of fonts) would only require three defaults changes:

defaults write NSFont BitstreamVeraSans-Roman
defaults write NSBoldFont BitstreamVeraSans-Bold
defaults write NSUsedFixedPitchFont BitstreamVeraSansMono-Roman

Any objections? Comments? Thoughts?

Great! I had this exact problem when trying the art backend (it didn't have the 
fonts I used with xlib, and xlib didn't have the fonts I was using with art
when I went back to xlib).

One step further would be, if NSBoldFont is not defined, to take a heavier 
of NSFont, (similarly for NSUserFixedPitchFont). This way, by changing only one 
value one could change all fonts.
All this supposing that font trait changing works in NSFontManager.
