Could you not do that in your .htaccess file ? (or presumably in more 
powerful ways if it's a VPS, etc.)

"simply" add a  rewrite rule that adds the "-f" flag to HTTP requests in 
general, with an override rule for those few server scripts that might 
want font initialization.

Actually, I think it would also be good (if it's feasible) to have a way 
to invoke the font-loading from within LCS, so that e.g. a library that 
did intend to do graphics stuff could request font loading when needed. 
(Yes, I do have one of those - generates graphs, snapshots them into a 
JPG file and then includes that in the html output. :-)
