Hmmmm, that seems sensible. I'm puzzled, though, by the less worse way
to achieve this.

As of now, we have:

bubulle at sesostris:~/src/debian/pkg-fonts/git/fonts-android(master) $ more debian/fonts-droid.install
Droid*.ttf      usr/share/fonts/truetype/droid

So basically : "let's install all fonts whose name starts with "Droid"
". How can we technically do "All fonts whose name starts with 'Droid'
but two of them"

Unless we, of course, list them all one by one....

Maybe something like this

	rm <path>/DroidSansFallback.ttf || true
	rm <path>/DroidSansFallbackLegacy.ttf || true
