I initially filed this bug because DejaVu looked ugly in Abiword, and I
found that there are DejaVu variants by looking at gedit preferences.
Abiword (from abiword-gnome) itself only shows these variants:

      * Regular
      * Italic
      * Bold
      * Bold italic

The "Regular" variant in the Abiword font selection dialog seems to
correspond to the "Condensed" variant in the GNOME font selection
dialog. I now notice that the GNOME font selection dialog sorts the two
"Condensed" variants before the "Book" variant.

So, I'm not sure if this should be reassigned to abiword-gnome or what.
