DAV porting question (was Re (2): [Oberon] PC.Compile singularities)

Hello Edgar,

I've been a little off focus on the DAV port,
but I'm looking at it again.  Now I've got
XML just about ported, but it's other 
BlueBottle dependencies that have be held
up like DAVFonts.  Specifically DAVFonts
imports module Kernel.  Most of what Kernel
does in DAVFonts seems to be doable with
Out.String and Out.Ln, but there is a call
to Kernel.GetConfig:

  FontId := Objects.LibBlockId; NEW(theChar);
  Kernel.GetConfig("FontConv", s);
  conv := s[0] # "0";
  Objects.Register("Fnt", New)
END Init;

What's the purpose of this code, and is it
needed on non-BlueBottle systems?
