Make IPL fonts width-compatible
Dolphin's new free IPL fonts (see PR 1877) are not width-compatible with the original fonts. This shouldn't break things but it might word-wrap text differently and stuff like that.
To fix this, we should check how the current font looks when the glyph widths are set to their original values and if it looks awful, find a font that is either width-compatible or at least not awfully non-compatible. The original fonts have pretty weird proportions though, so I'm not too optimistic about this.

An example of a place where things are a bit more broken is CleanRip. CleanRip contains text strings like "Press A to continue", with an A button image drawn on top of the A character. The positions for the button images are hardcoded, so they end up in the wrong places when Dolphin's font is used. Luckily, this doesn't affect many users because using CleanRip in Dolphin is rather useless. I hope that more popular software (licensed games) don't do ugly things like this.

Mario Kart: Double Dash!! Bonus Disc is also affected by this, GameID PM4E01. The new english fonts introduced in 4.0-5097 made it worse.
