So, would the attached fontconfig file be ok according to your knowledge
of Chinese users? (installed as 65-google-droid-sans-fallback.conf)

I'm quite happy to learn that even among Chinese people prefer vector
fonts. I prefer them myself, and IMHO they are the future anyway :p.

However, to keep everyone happy, can you share with us what your
declinaison of vector/bitmap fontconfig rules would be for Droid? It's
quite easy for me to put two different files in the rpm, with only one
linked in /etc/conf.d/ by default.
