Bug#686098: Acknowledgement (After wheezy, please add symlinks to make the OTF variant available under /u/s/fonts and thus for fontconfig)

Is that a good idea? The fonts will not be available to not
fontconfig using programs - or am I wrong?
A typical xterm, would that run with it? 

Maybe nowadays it is uncommon to use programs that do not
use fontconfig, but I want to check back.

Any opinion here by anyone?

Best wishes
