You are correct that Resizable lib (and I thing the layout manager in MFC
or Xtreme Toolkit do not mess with the font. If it were me I would not
want to change the font size, but rather just the amount of re-estate the
controls take up so that it is maximized. I think modifying the font
might be more distracting and may end up making it smaller when the user
had set it to be larger in the system settings.

Usually this is desired, but when the window does not contain any child
controls that naturally stretch such as list controls or edit boxes, but
just fixed size things like buttons, it is very useful to have all the
buttons grow and their text fonts to also grow so that the window presents
as much useful info as possible.
