Turns out fonts-noto already ship a udeb with fonts not currently used
in debian-installer. I now updated and tightened the package: Please
use officially released fonts-noto-unhinted-udeb 20181130-1 available
(soon if not already when you read this) in unstable.
@Holger: Can you provide screenshots not only with Noto Sans Gujarathi
but also Noto Sans Gujarathi UI and Noto Serif Gujarathi? Then we can
have Kartik and/or other native Gujarathi readers judge which is more
suitable (and if any are similar/better than older font use).
