Your message got me looking at the fonts currently in the extra repo.
There are quite a few fonts there of which I've never heard of, and
quite a few of them are orphans. Not sure if they deserve their place
in extra as I'm not an artistic type of guy who does a lot with fonts
and such, but how about swapping some of them with the most popular
fonts in community (liberation, freefont, inconsolata and libertine)?
All these seem to be maintained by developers anyway so it won't
increase workload.
