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.
