Well, requiring these fonts is a "good thing" as OOo needs outline fonts
to do anything useful, and e.g. we have no other proper greek outline
fonts, and it improves the italic and bold support of the vera-style set
of fonts without recourse to fake italic/bold over Vera.

At the same time, installing the dejavu-lgcc package changes the
fontconfig fallbacks in some ways which is a problem, e.g. 
fc-match "Thorndale AMT" should really behave the same as 
fc-match "Times New Roman"
regardless of if dejavu-lgc is installed or not

Personally I'd prefer if the deja fonts were slotted into the fontconfig
confs in positions just above the vera fonts, instead of with "prepend"
which is effectively slotting them at the top of the "serif" and
"sans-serif" and "mono" sections.
