Bug#891855: fonts-monoid: installs no less than 4000 font files!

I think I have a better idea: In e.g. the Libreoffice font chooser the
fonts represent themselves as
 - Monoid
 - Monoid HalfLoose
 - Monoid HalfTight
 - Monoid Loose
 - Monoid Tight
 - Monoisome
 - Monoisome HalfLoose
 - Monoisome HalfTight
 - Monoisome Loose
 - Monoisome Tight
i.e. they are grouped by their tracking.

It will probably make sense to split the package up in the same way, so
we'd be down to "just a few hundred" font files per package.

Needless to say, probably, but I am a DD and also part of the Debian
fonts team and I'd love to help discuss and implement a proper solution
for the package split-up!
