Just because fonts come from different directories, that doesn't mean that
there is some significance to the grouping. Might be and might not be. Also,
I don't know how to get rid of duplicates unless I sort first. Standard font
dialogs always sort by name. In wxPython, you can start typing the name and
it will automatically scroll to the font.
