I would prefer sticking to "real" packages such as fonts-lohit-deva
for Devanagari-based languages, etc. This minimizes the size of needed
packages in Depends+Recommends which is always good when it comes  at
producing ISO images for instance.

So, as of now, I went for this.

(I kept Kartik CC'ed as I don't remember if he's subscribed to pkg-fotns)
