while on the subject (but on the g-i tip), is worth noticing that alot
of memory is taken up by unused font files:

1332    ./truetype/ttf-tmuni
132     ./truetype/thai
52      ./truetype/ttf-bpg-georgian
660     ./truetype/ttf-dejavu
136     ./truetype/ttf-farsiweb
664     ./truetype/freefont
268     ./truetype/ttf-khmeros
204     ./truetype/ttf-malayalam-fonts
72      ./truetype/ttf-tamil-fonts
5320    ./truetype

which means that if I install debian using Italian translations
(and thus using dejavu fonts, used by more than 40 languages), I "waste"
5.2 Mb rather than just 660 Kb, which is crazy.
When using g-i, besides trimming templates.dat, we could delete unused ttf files.
