Yes, font overlay would certainly work; but Haiku does not have this
I vaguely recall Axel saying that font overlay would be implemented at
some point in time, so I suppose it's possible (but maybe not trivial?)
. Until that happens, it would be a good idea to retain font switching
in this applet.
As usual, all FWIW and IMHO disclaimers apply. :)
