[REBOL] arguments from/to request-font

From: d4marcus:dtek:chalmers:se at: 21-Dec-2000 21:44

I have started writing a request-font function for View, which I think would go nicely with the other request-* functions. But I'm not sure about the input and output. Currently it takes no arguments, and returns a font object, or None if canceled. This is probably not very useful in most situations, so I'd like to hear some opinions on this. Consider for example a text-editor (area) for which you'd like to change the font. If there's no previous formatting, you wouldn't need to pass an argument, so the current function (which btw remembers the current state) would work. This hardly seems like a good example though. Then there's the issue if it's good to return a font object. Perhaps it would be better to return a block like [name: "times" style: none ... ].
