Small but important fixes needed in existing features:
* Bring back the feature of showing the part of the buffer that is a problem
for the use of the preferred coding systems.
* Make compile.el record the markers that point to error loci
on text properties in the error message lines.
Important features:
* Provide user-friendly ways to list all available font families,
display a font as a sample, etc.

decent single definition of RTF?]

probably needs to be done from actual Emacs buffers, either directly
in the menu or by rendering in an unmapped window and copying the

text, which it often can't as far as I can tell. -- fx]

be only full columns/lines.

the XPMs so that the colour versions work generally. (Requires care
with the colour used for the transparent regions.)
* Convenient access to the `values' variable. It would be nice to have an

other variable, without changing the value of `values'.
