I'm not entirely sure whether msttcorefonts should also be part of it. On the 
one hand it would increase interoperability with Windows systems, but on the 
other hand users might start using MS fonts as the default ones ... which 
makes at least me feel uncomfortable.

What for? I thought we want encourage people to use OGG-Vorbis, and since 
playback possability of MP3 is provided by libxine1-ffmpeg most users might 
already be happy with including this.
