Sorry.  Guess I should have included that.  Actually, I'd forgotten that I
wrote that.  I keep thinking it's built-in.

(defun ascent (&optional font-spec)
  (first (multiple-value-list (font-info font-spec)))

(defun descent (&optional font-spec)
  (second (multiple-value-list (font-info font-spec)))

(defun widmax (&optional font-spec)
  (third (multiple-value-list (font-info font-spec)))

(defun leading (&optional font-spec)
  (fourth (multiple-value-list (font-info font-spec)))

(defun font-height (&optional font-spec)
  (+ (ascent font-spec) (descent font-spec) (leading font-spec))

Now that I look at it, I see that it wasn't very intelligent to make those
calls to ascent, descent and leading instead of doing another
multiple-value-bind.  (MUST have been a pretty off day for me.)  Anyway, it
should be correct and it IS correct once the window gets all built.  But it
seems to be wrong until AFTER *my* exist function returns.
Does exist for a *dialog* (or *window* or any other ancestor) eval-enqueue
anything regarding font-information?  That would explain it.
