Well, shut my mouth.  I'd never grokked that about Defoma.  That's cool.

I've been patching my /etc/X11/Xftconfig as well as XF86Config-4
to manually point to /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-bitstream-vera.
Your suggestion says to only update XF86Config-4.  Should I point 
XftConfig to /var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType as well?
