Yeah, I think we can remove that. I was looking at 
https://developer.gnome.org/gtk3/stable/gtk-x11.html mentioning the use 
of GDK_DPI_SCALE in conjunction with GDK_SCALE, but reading it again 
that appears more intended for use by applications and not users, so I 
think it's safe for our application to ignore it.
