As in the case a Ubuntu system is shared by users who 
uses various languages, does above solution work well?
(e.g. the case English, Spanish, Greek and CJK users share 
one Ubuntu system.)
I think this is likely case at colleges.

Since language-pack-base-* packages don't conflicts each other, 
we install langage-pack-base-* packages for various langages 
to built multi-language Ubuntu system.

So, ideally, we should write config files for fontconfig 
not affecting other language users, I think.

I don't know whether this is possible...does anyone know?
