ttf-liberation maybe. But what should it say? "If you need
$random_font_XXX install the non-free fonts from M$?"

For openoffice.org this would be wrong, OOo has no business with what
fonts it needs (except ttf-opensymbol, which is needed to make some
stuff work)

My personal opinion is that people who need the M$ fonts should just install
