Alrite, i understand the scenario, but i don't fully understand the quoted
sentence. Perhaps i also don't understand how the code works. First do we
wish to imply for any reason that the *font is the one* who tried to find a
font size? Then what is actually finding a font size? I understand that we
have a given font but then we measure what and try to find what?
Please, i'm still in the maze ;o)

So for me to understand, we have them both because we don't have Number2 by
default with Vanilla, did i understand right?
