Quoting Erich Schubert (erich at debian.org):

Yes, saw that. Of course, font packages do not really need much
work. Just, from time to time, follow the packaging style changes
(that lead to many simplifications up to dh7-oneliners recently).

Here, my main intent is working on getting rid of defoma, which
requires changing nearly all font packages..:)... We also plan to
rename font packages to make them fit a naming policy that could be
common with other distros. This also requires quite some work...

Thanks for your answer, Erich. Anyway, experienced DD's time is better
spent on more complicated packages....

I'll integrate ttf-larabie in our SVN ASAP.
