Hello (again) Gunnar,

We could indeed package *all* fonts from this resource:


Looking further, I find it sad that no real source is provided for
these fonts, by the way.

Anyway, adding this to my TODO list, but the package will first go to
Debian experimental, not unstable.

And, ifyou're in touch with people interested in Urdu localization,
this language is one of the major ones that we're missing in Debian
Installer....hint, hint.
