Yes. This is basically the reason I removed alias support in the lowlevel 
module. Pango already handle lists of fontnames wherever you can specify 
a font. All that is needed is a simple way to say "the name foo really 
means this list of fonts".

Unfortunately I think work on implementing pango-global aliases were held 
up by other issues at some point. I still think it's the right thing
