I never did find out about this.  If it doesn't work, perhaps you should
file a wishlist bug on the package asking for support.

Only programs using "X core fonts" will have access to fonts shared with
a font server.  Things like GNOME2 and KDE3 use fontconfig which to the
best of my knowledge is not able to access fonts via a X font server.

Hm, that could work.  Post to the list when you've tried it?
