Bug#497331: console-setup: Please don't use Terminus by default.
console-setup depends on console-terminus, and uses the Terminus fonts
by default. Please consider defaulting to VGA instead. As the Ubuntu
changelog puts it:
> console-setup (1.7ubuntu18) edgy; urgency=low
> * Change the default font to VGA where supported; Terminus does not seem
> to have widespread aesthetic appeal.
Indeed it doesn't. Having the option of Terminus seems useful, but
using it by default feels uncomfortable.
Ideally, console-setup could just Suggests: console-terminus, and
offer it as an option if installed.
