For MapGuide text and font symbols the definition of the font is contained
in the layer XML.

When authoring layers in Maestro there is a hard-coded set of fonts from an
XML file.  These are pretty standard but limits flexibility, especially when
dealing with symbol fonts that may have been loaded on to the server.  Is
there a way through the MapGuide API do do font discovery?

Finally, I noticed on a low-powered server that at MG service start-up
(using FileMon) there was a huge amount of font polling.  A couple of Asian
sets (Batang) took 30+ seconds of MG server processing.
