An often requested feature is to be able to view and edit font sizes in points (pt) rather than the Inkscape default pixels (px).

In style.cpp the font size is always set to be px

 os << key << ":" << val->computed << "px;";      // must specify px, see inkscape bug 1221626, mozilla bug 234789

Is there a compelling reason why Inkscape always uses px units for font sizes ?

The mozilla bug 234789 seems more related to the case of having no unit specified.
Any way to access these old bugs reports like 1221626 ?
