Packaging true type fonts with minor variation

Hi folks,

I have a question on how to package true type fonts while making tiny
section of fonts to be made debconf selectable.

(This is related to ttf-arphic-{ukai|uming} font packages.)

Current solution I suggested to the packager was to provide binary diff
and apply it everytime debconf are run.  (Yes we need a set of diff
files to patch and unpatch.)

But this is not really elegant.  If I know the true type font file
structure better, maybe there is better solution.

If this is done properly, we can have an unicode fonts with its font style
customizable per each section


Example of minor font change: 0 with/without center dot
