brainstorming for UDS-N - Package Selection and Defaults

Looking at old Blueprints, I saw one for font management from 2006. [1] It 
reminded me that Akkana Peck was not long ago complaining in #ubuntu-women 
about the font manager situation (no way to tell apps not to show fonts for 
languages she doesn't speak, no way to categorise, etc) in Ubuntu.  She ended 
up writing an app called Fontasia[2] that handles these use-cases nicely.  
It's a small PyGTK app, and I told her I'd package it for her after she makes 
the UI tweaks she mentions in link 2 (which I think she did a few days ago).  

Perhaps time to revisit that old spec and include such an app?
