In my opinion, if you simply hardcode another hinting-default, there
will be others who are complaining that the change causes ugly fonts,
e.g. autohinter does not work or something like that. The only way to
close this or similar bugs would be, to add full
fontconfig-hinting-support to OOo. Fedora seems to have updated patches
in their cvs (I know they have a lot of other patches, e.g. native
gtk-printing, always-gtk-frontend etc. which may interfere with it, but
not necessaryly), maybe they are worth a try?
