They work, but they--like they always have--control the font sizes for
the non-themed, Qt widgets. The theme controls the font sizes for the
themed portions of Myth--as the theme always has.

They are. In the Appearance section, there's a control called,
"Theme." If you change it, it changes the fonts/font sizes/... :)

This would be wonderful--and would actually make sense now that the UI
is mostly converted to mythui. All we need, now, is someone to write
such a theme editor...
