Modern system often have special handling for high dpi screens. Older
applications are usually scaled to match applications that are dpi aware. This
however doesn't look nearly as good as if it is done properly.

We should implement proper high dpi support in FLTK so that the client looks
nice on these systems.

A first step might be to do a dumb scaling of most things and just render the
text at the proper dpi, as that is the primary problem.

Implementing proper high dpi support in FLTK is not trivial work. A different
approach could be to abandon FLTK in favor of for example Qt (see bug 4031)
which already has support for this.
