I wrote Fonty Python for (almost) this kind of thing. It ain't gonna do a font 
per second but it lets you view fonts that are *not* installed but just 
sitting in a folder someplace. You can then temporarily group and install the 
ones you want. 

I like to keep the number of fonts installed small. I hate loooooong font 
choosers. Even so, I still have the most bizarre fonts that I never use and 
don't know how to get rid of -- they sort of apt-creep in it seems.

So, it might help you if you change your use-approach.
