I'd second that! I'd like to know what which font management is used by
App X, so that I know how to address font problems. Maybe it could be
added to packages like: readme.font-config or added to the pkg info like
'installed-size'. Better font info and thus handling would go a long way
to makeing gnu/linux and debian better accecpted.
