Package: defoma
Version: 0.11.1

Just some wishlist items:
Adding fonts to defoma is too complex! There are too many questions to be answered for each font. And how do I know whether the general family is "Mincho" or ... ? 

I've hundreds of Type 1 and truetype fonts that I would like to make available via defoma, but it's just too difficult. It would be nice to point to the directory of type 1 or truetype font files and just say "here they are, do it", or whatever.

If having hundreds of fonts installed takes up too many resources, it would be nice to have a simple way of repeatedly installing and uninstalling groups of fonts. Converting them to packages and using apt-get install or remove as root would be too difficult.  

Installing a font via defoma doesn't make it available to xfs; why isn't xfs registered with defoma?

Thanks for listening,
