reverse-dependencies, if any.

team's usual schema of prefixing packages with "fonts-". This does also
apply to the femkeklaver package that I just reviewed some minutes ago,
sorry for this oversight:

Please turn ttf-* packages into transitional package depending on the
fonts-* pendants and providing symlinks to the fonts' previous
