I wonder if fonts.conf should be installed as per
locale by, say, language-env or alike.
The idea is from CJK different preferences on fonts,
as described here:
Combined with attempts of users of some languages to
get their favourite fonts over those in ttf-freefont, and
to explicitly classify local fonts as "sans-serif", "serif",
"monospace", rather than relying on fontconfig calculation
which is wrong in many cases, I think the requirements of
locale-based fonts.conf is somehow valid.
It may not be per font package, as in the case of CJK.
Moreover, fontconfig preference list does not require
the fonts to exist.
What do you think?
