There's also Chrome that wants to filter out bitmap fonts... Since FcFontSort() / Match() go through all fonts anyway, maybe a variant that takes a predicate function is useful. The predicate then can reject eg bitmap, or WOFF fonts...

Hmm, FcFontSort()... that is a tough problem. They use different
matching functions in the first place. I sometimes think of a better
way to get an inclusive/exclusive list of fonts which can't be done in
FcFontSort() at the moment. that should be the same root cause of it.
However, changing behavior may not be realistic. We may need a new API for that.
