Hmm, that looks not intuitive to me. in fact both are also a font
path. "cache path" are the sort of /var/cache/fontconfig or so. how
about "host-path"? although one can see it is remapping a path to
somewhere but still missing how this actually works in fontconfig.
i.e. to determine a cache filename to read.
