After a closer look, I changed my mind : imho, we should switch from
one "fonts-nafees" package providing only one font, to a family of
fonts-nafees-* packages, eventually, with a virtual package providing
all fonts.

The reason for this is that each font in the "family" (indeed, "from
that foundry") has its own version numbering scheme, so we want to be
able to update one without updating the whole package.

Regarding Khaled's mention of enhancing some of the fonts, I'm fine
with that but, imho, it should be proposed upstream so that they can
include an update with Arabic glyphs in future releases.
