XEmacs needs it.  We have an explicit reference to a LucidaTypewriter font.

We started to transition to fontconfig 2004-ish.  Unfortunately, the
developers who started that effort have since mostly disappeared.  If
there are any competent fontconfig developers who could give us a hand
completing the transition, please stop by xemacs-beta xemacs org and
say hello.  I will personally send a box of home-made oatmeal raisin
cookies [1] to anyone who can help us finish the job.

Footnotes:
[1] I can make no guarantees about the state of crumbliness on
arrival, of course.
