I've pushed upstream (@dejavu) the fontconfig files we use to achievethis effect @fedora. If the fonconfig maintainers stance on Dejavuchanged they could be moved to fontconfig. Last time the issue vasdiscussed there was some opposition to preferring dejavu at thefontconfig level.
Also I rather prefer distributed policy in separate files, since thatmeans they're only deployed if the font packages themselves areinstalled on the system (instead of mucking with .avail symlinks, andtrying to manage a centralised policy everyone patches anyway).

We're dropping Luxi @fedora since the license forbids modification andyou have alternatives with more liberal licenses available nowadays.
