I'd like to get such changes into the released fonts.conf file -- my 
desire is that most users need never change that configuration.  Note that
current fontconfig bits reference /etc/fonts/local.conf for local changes 
and that reinstalling fontconfig will wipe out any fonts.conf changes.

We can't reverse them -- that's how 'Times' gets mapped to 'Times New 
Roman' -- first it gets mapped to 'serif' and then 'serif' is mapped to 
'Times New Roman'.

Comments would probably be a big help though.
