If Cantarell is this, which says

        As my very first typeface design... designed for on-screen
        reading; in particular, reading web pages on an HTC Dream mobile
        phone ...  font file currently contains 391 glyphs

then at first glance it seems an odd choice.

DejaVu serves us well with outstanding coverage across the Unicode space
and one of the only fonts with complimentary Serif, Sans, and Sans Mono
families. Do we need to replace it?
