Wow, This is huge for me. And I missed what this meant when I first read it
(don't read emails on summer vacation).

So we can do this on the external level. I see it might be tricky and
perhaps you can elaborate on the challenges please. It's just that once I
was asking if we could do that for external (thinking about cyclone/comment
then) and I got the idea that telling externals where to look for fonts is
not possible, but I see now Gem allows us to do that!

This would really be great for something like this where you can ship a
"music symbol" font and use an external like cyclone/comment to display
cool symbolic musical thingies!

I'll check on it and see if I can make any of it.
