It's Droid Sand *Fallback*.

Yes, but actually it *isn't* changed by a language-specific recipe, it
just applies globally. With the installation of the fonts-droid package,
Droid Sand Fallback will become the *prefered* sans-serif and monospace
font for all languages, that simply cannot be right. Or am I wrong?
