PROMPT should be a string that describes what the caller will do
with the face; it should not end in a space.
The optional argument DEFAULT specifies the default face name(s)
to return if the user just types RET. If its value is non-nil,
it should be a list of face names (symbols); in that case, the
default return value is the `car' of DEFAULT (if the argument
MULTIPLE is non-nil), or DEFAULT (if MULTIPLE is nil). See below
for the meaning of MULTIPLE.
If DEFAULT is nil, the list of default face names is taken from
the `read-face-name' property of the text at point, or, if that
is nil, from the `face' property of the text at point.

names, separated by commas. The optional argument MULTIPLE
specifies the form of the return value. If MULTIPLE is non-nil,

name, the return value would be a list of one face name.
Otherwise, return a single face name; if the user entered more
than one face name, return only the first one."
