There is Yoshiki's TrueTypeTextStyle package, which display high quality
(antialiased in this case) fonts in a cross-platform way. I'd like to look at
adding that when we get to the larger-enhancement harvesting part of the 3.6
The Win32NativeFonts are also very nice, but they're platform-specific, so we
probably wouldn't want them in the stock image.
Anyway, I agree that better fonts are probably the most important part in
improving Squeak's look.
