Yup, I don't disagree with any of your points. But, they miss the original
focus of the conversation.
This new theme requires a for-pay ($15?) font, and due to the licensing (I
assume) of the theme there are no modifications allowed. E.g. No finding a
font that you consider "good enough" and using that.
Maybe I'm just not a font person. As long as it doesn't look awful, I'm
pretty content with even the free-as-in-speech fonts. If none of those
work, I'll go for free-as-in-beer. But a font, to me, is not something
that's really worth paying for.
