OK. It is coming back to me, but this is a very nice summary.
So I should simply drop d.font and d.font.freetype from the GUI menu. They
are meaningless in that context.
We could replace them with a script that sets GRASS_FONT and GRASS_FT_FONT.
I think the layers that use text and can set text (e.g., the text layers)
are coded to check the current status of the global variables and set them
back when done.
