IMHO when you use the fontconfig aliases in a document you can get fonts
with any metric, so if people want microsoft-compatible metrics we should
just create specific Arial/Times New Roman/Courier substitution tables
(and not rely on the generic ones).

But fontconfig in general while a great font backend is suffering from
under-documented config grammar, which means the default conf sucks a tad
and no one knows how to change it sanely.

If you care about this you should drop on ##fonts Freenode at 12:00 UTC
