  Almost.  For the font part, the Scratch experience tells us that the
rendered text size widely varies from a font to another.  They need to
explicitly specify the scale factor for each languages.  We don't have
that mechanism so either have it or specify the font sizes for
languages would be needed.

  For the classes, the clipboard and "keyboard input interpreter"
etc. should be aware of it (unfortunately).
