While we're on the subject, I'd like to point out an interesting
Discussion [1] which took place on the dejavu mailing list; what's
Interesting in particular, are the fontconfig patches included by
Nicolas Mailhot
And Jay Hobson (Fedora team) which should make It possible to fine
tuning the fonts
On an installed system.
It should be possible to decide which font should use and/or should not
A particular language.

While this may seem OT on this thread (I hope not too much), I think it
might be
Useful especially for languages where the default font installed by the
does not cover as many languages as Dejavu or freefont.
