[Image-SIG] finding truetype fonts

At the moment the Imaging extension requires you to
specify a filename for the truetype font. I wrote a
small piece of code for pygame (which was put into
pygame in a different form) that allowed you to look
up fonts by name. It works on Windows (tested on WinXP)
and Unix. It relies on no pygame-specific APIs.


Could something like this find it's way into PIL?
