If the font size changes (which IMO is a good thing), we will probably 
need to adjust the "font size correction" currently done in D-I by the 
gtk-set-font script in the rootskel-gtk package.
Or does the "There is no change to the udeb" mean that the size for the 
font included in the udeb was not changed?

Note that we _do_ currently increase the font size by 2 points in the 
installer: the default font size in the installer is 9, but for Indic 
languages we use 11. Having a better "standard size 9" for the font in 
the udeb would IMO be preferable in the long run.

I also see that we currently don't actually set a font for Indic languages 
(like we do for some others), but that's probably OK.
