I've done something similar. I removed all embedded font copies and replaced them with
symlinks to font packages in Debian.

ae_AlMothnna-Bold.ttf -> DejaVuSans.ttf (fonts-dejavu)
gargi.ttf -> Gargi.ttf (fonts-gargi)
tahoma.ttf -> Norasi.ttf (fonts-tlwg-norasi)
Ubuntu-R.ttf -> DejaVuSans.ttf (fonts-dejavu)
wqy-microhei.ttc -> wqy-microhei.ttc (ttf-wqy-microhei)

I'm quite satisfied with the result. It looks nice.

Thanks for replacing the interface-sounds. I'll have a look at them soon.
I've already replaced the music with your recommendations Tenpel, Chrimson Blue
and tri-stikhii and Emptiness.ogg from Alexander Blu for the tutorial.
You can download the sources with

dget -x

or simply grab the original tarball here:

Perhaps you like this mix too.

If Obsidian Shell changed the license, I think that would be worth a beer. :)

James Cowgill packaged SFML2 for Debian and he is still looking for a sponsor.
I'm using his package locally and it works fine.
