Right. Another thing to consider would be to move the update-fonts-* to
triggers in the future.
Your patch makes us ship /var/lib/xfonts/excluded-aliases in the
package, so AFAICT it will replace the local version on each
xfonts-utils upgrade, which is not what we want. I'll change this to
create the file in postinst if it doesn't exist, and remove it in
Thanks for the patch, I'll try to find time to review more closely and
upload it soonish.
