It depends on what our default desktop looks like.

While ttf-unfonts is a much better choice in antialiased environment
(GNOME/KDE) or for printing, it's almost unusable in non-antialiased
environment (ie. traditional X apps). That's why baekmuk is used in
bf-utf-source, while ttf-unfonts is used for G-I. If we can just ignore
such traditional apps in the default desktop installation, it's ok to
drop ttf-baekmuk and xfonts-baekmuk.
