I already suspected the color thing wouldn't be that easy.

I'm not sure, is this the reinvention of the wheel? Using DlgUnit sizing 
will resize the control according to the font used. We certainly don't 
want to set each window's font individually, it's right the opposite: we 
set the parent, and all childs will use that font (for display and size 
calculation) unless changed afterward.

We have well-designed dialogs that provide exactly the space needed for 
each control's contents (relative to the font). We certainly don't need 
an additional mechanism for changing the rendering. Or is 
SetWindowVariant just about GetBestSize etc? I'd understand that, but we 
don't use it anyway.
