Insert my vote for this here. This is long overdue, and while it's not a
problem for latin-script-using foo's, everyone else (like Rob, here, who
wants to see Japanese and Thai fonts at the same time, or me) who wants to
use non-latin scripts along with latin ones. Historically, most Japanese
fonts have had horrid latin glyphs, for instance...

The same is true for Korean font(which also has horrible latin glyphs...), my solution (yes, I know this is illegal) is mixing FreeSans for Latin glyphs and one Korean font for Korean glyphs, and named it as FreeSansKor. I think we should have more general
solution like substitution...

 Have my .2 center here.
 That's something I want from GNUstep long time ago.
 Latin glyph from Chinese font is unbelievable ugly,
 and there are some issuesabout the latin glyph size from Chinese font,
 which make Terminal unusable for me in Chinese environment.


BTW, with back-art and subpixel rendering, FreeSans font looks cool. :-)
